Vulnerable Persons Registry (VPR)

Vulnerable Persons Registry (VPR)

To support inclusive emergency preparedness, Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo Emergency Services offers a Vulnerable Persons Registry (VPR), that is available to all qualifying residents.

The VPR is a free, voluntary and confidential service aimed at improving the safety of residents living at home who would be at greater risk during emergencies. The VPR provides key information to local emergency services about vulnerable people within the region during local large-scale emergencies.

The VPR is available to residents within the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo who experience severe difficulty with any of the following:

  • Mobility, vision or hearing.
  • Developmental/ Intellectual, cognitive, or mental health.

Or residents who require electricity for life-sustaining equipment such as life support, oxygen, dialysis, etc.

Please note: Those living with continuous 24-hour assistance, who are not left unassisted for periods of time, do not qualify for the VPR.
