Every moment counts in a medical emergency. Make sure first responders have critical information about your kids, even if you aren't there. Take advantage of a free, confidential service, sponsored by OHSU.
HERO Kids Registry is a voluntary, no-cost system that lets any Oregon family share critical information about their child’s health before an emergency. The information can be quickly accessed by emergency medical services (EMS) and hospital emergency department (ED) providers, so they have the information they need when they need it.
By registering with HERO Kids, you give EMS and ED providers a head start on understanding your child's medical history, unique needs and individualized supports. For example, it helps emergency responders to know if a young patient is non-verbal.
HERO Kids is for any Oregon child or young adult (through age 26). It is especially useful for young people with complicated or chronic health conditions, and for those who experience developmental disabilities or mental health conditions. Learn more and register your kids at the OHSU Hero Kids Registry.
