Alabamians no longer have to worry about having “In Case of Emergency”
written on a card in their wallet or unlocking their smartphone to
retrieve contact information in case of an accident or emergency. The
Alabama Law Enforcement Agency now gives the public an option to
associate emergency contact information to their driver license online
through the already existing Online
Driver Services Suite, hosted and maintained by Alabama Interactive.
Users can add their information when visiting alea.gov
either as part of a license renewal or duplicate transaction online or
as a separate submission. The process is as simple as selecting
Emergency Contact as the service
and recording the name, relationship, address and phone number of a
person they would like listed as the emergency contact. Upon arrival to
an emergency, a trooper will be able to immediately view this
information when entering the driver license number or other identifying
factors of the parties involved. The process is just as user-friendly
when editing emergency contact information already saved in the system.
The user simply returns to the online
service menu and enters updated or new information.
The submission of emergency contact information is not mandatory but the
option to do so is required by the Emergency
