MyEmergencyContactInfo.org is an educational program offered by ParentGrief, a non-profit corporation of Ohio.
First responders have only the address on the drivers license to find family members. Is someone always there?
Working with lawmakers and the Ohio BMV they passed House Bill 392 which was signed into law by Governor Strickland on May 1, 2008. On September 8, 2008 the Ohio Next of Kin Database was launched by the BMV. Ohio is one of the first states in the US to offer this service to its residents. Any holder of a valid Ohio driver license, temporary permit or State ID card will now have the option of providing the name and contact information of a person they wish to be notified should they be involved in an emergency.
The intent of our organization is to provide education about the Ohio Next of Kin Registry to all citizens in Ohio.
