Replace your tax disc with an Emergency Contact Disc
Replace your tax disc with an Emergency Contact Disc to provide vital information for first responders at medical emergencies or road traffic collisions.
Nottinghamshire Police are supporting Warwickshire Police and West Mercia Police’s new Emergency Contact Disc, which has been designed to replace the space left by the decommissioning of vehicle road tax discs.
The Emergency Contact Disc contains next of kin contact details and medical alert information for the driver.
In the event of a medical emergency or road crash, a first responder will be able to get vital information that is not otherwise accessible at the scene if the occupants are unable to communicate.
