Help and support for carers Useful Information Carers Emergency Alert Card Carers Emergency Alert Card - Redbridge Council operate a Carers Emergency Alert Card scheme. The scheme is free to access and we can help you to apply. The card identifies you as a carer and stores information about the person you care for and two people who can be contacted in the event of an emergency, to provide support to the cared for person in your absence. If the nominated person(s) cannot be reached at the time of an emergency, the Council will arrange alternative support for a short period.
