Emergency contact list

Wilton Social Services, in cooperation with the Wilton Department of Health, is updating the Wilton Emergency Contact Registration program. This information may be used in case of a town-wide emergency.

The program is intended for senior citizens, those living alone, individuals with disabilities, and any resident with a special need or desire to participate.

The information would be helpful in:

  • Assisting public safety personnel, police, fire, rescue squad and emergency management in locating residents that may need assistance during an emergency situation or evacuation. In an extreme situation, this information would enable safety personnel to reach out to those listed as emergency contacts.

  • Permitting the town to be better aware of residents with special needs.

This confidential information will be kept at the Wilton Department of Social Services for quick retrieval if needed and will be accessed only for public safety purposes.

Please note we encourage all residents to prepare to shelter in their homes with appropriate emergency supplies. An extensive preparedness guide is available online at if you click on the Emergency Preparedness Information link on the right side of the homepage. If you would like to register your information for the Emergency Contact List, please call Wilton Social Services at 203-834-6238.
