About the Vitals App
The Vitals app provides police officers and first responders with real-time, critical information about vulnerable individuals, including a photo, diagnoses, personalized de-escalation techniques, medications, behavior triggers, caregiver contact information and more.
A voluntary, opt-in program, individuals or caregivers register for Vitals online and supply relevant information. There is no cost to create a Vitals profile.
Vitals developed the app-based service in partnership with the Autism Society of Minnesota and partners with PACER Center and The Arc Minnesota to raise awareness and promote use of the app.
