FRANKFORT, Ky. (LEX 18) – Governor Matt Bevin announced a new program Thursday that is designed to bring Kentuckians peace of mind following crashes.

“Emergency Notice” is an online emergency contact registry that will be accessible to law enforcement officials in the event a Kentucky driver’s license, personal ID, or permit cardholder is involved in a serious vehicle crash or emergency situation.

Kentuckians can submit their emergency contact’s name, relationship, and phone number via the “Emergency Notice” portal on the website. The contact information is integrated into the cardholder’s driving record.

Kentuckians with limited internet access may call KYTC at 502-564-1257 or provide emergency contact information in-person at the Circuit Court Clerk office in their county of residence.
