New Take Me Home Program
The Marshalltown/Marshall County 911 Communications Center is pleased to announce the implementation of the TAKE ME HOME software program.
TAKE ME HOME allows for the safe return home of those who may not be able to communicate vital information to law enforcement officers or first responders. TAKE ME HOME is a database for people who may need special assistance. It includes a current digital picture, demographic information and caregiver contacts. If a person in the TAKE ME HOME system encounters a police officer the officer can query the system by name or the person’s physical description. This system also works in reverse. If a loved one goes missing, their picture and description is immediately available.
To enroll go to https://www.co.marshall.ia.us/TMH. All personal information provided is confidential and accessible to authorized emergency personnel only. Enrollment is restricted to persons with limited ability to communicate and for those with conditions such as autism, alzheimers, down syndrome, dementia or with conditions that put them at extra risk for wandering or getting lost. This program was developed by the Marshall County Information Services Department. For more information contact Teresa Lang 754-4750 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
