Florida Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles is using this holiday season to encourage people to register their emergency contacts.

Through the Emergency Contact Information program, licensed drivers and identification card can register two contacts in the database.

These people could then be notified in the event of an emergency, such as a vehicle crash.

Only law enforcement officers would be able to contact these individuals.

Currently, 4 million Floridians have registered their information.

With people hitting the roads for holiday travel, FHSMV wants to encourage people to register.

"We have a lot more people traveling in and out of the state of Florida to go see family. We have a lot of people on the roads so we may see an increase in crashes and things like that so this may be a very good reminder this is something you need to do," said FHSMV Spokesperson, Ann Howard.

Registration can be completed at a state or a tax collector-operated driver license office. You can also complete the form online, at the link below.
