Carver County offers help for first responders

Carver County is now offering signs that deputies say will help first responders as they respond to the home of a person with a special condition. 

The signs inform police, fire or emergency medical services personnel when a patient has a condition that could affect how officers interact with the resident. 

“These decals will help deputies in knowing who they could possibly be dealing with in an emergency, and to assist them with the correct treatment or care,” the Carver County Sheriff’s Office wrote in a Facebook post. 

The signs, which officials say are available at city halls and through police departments across Carver County, feature warnings for residents with autism, hearing difficulties, dementia or Alzheimer’s, diabetes or a brain injury or PTSD. People can pick up the free signs and put them in a prominent place at their residences. 

The Carver County Sheriff said the signs are part of a countywide program.
