Helping your loved-ones to stay safe
Are you caring for someone who may become lost or confused while out of their home?
Kent Police and Kent Fire and Rescue Service (KFRS) has a form to assist you and them to locate or search for individuals.
This form should be completed as soon as you can, to help in the event of an emergency. We would encourage you to spend time with your loved one completing this form whilst you’re relaxed, comfortable and able to think clearly ahead of a possible situation.
