Business Emergency Contact Registration

If you own a business in Bristol, it’s important that you complete the Emergency Contact Form and submit it to the Police Department. All of the information that’s collected is loaded into Bristol’s Computer-Aided Dispatch (CAD) System and assists public safety officers in providing a rapid response.
