"Is NOKR in Your Wallet?"

It's Fast, Free and Secure
NOKR belongs to you!

Who will speak for you or your family in your hour of need?








The Next Of Kin Registry (NOKR) was established as a FREE tool for daily emergencies and national disasters. NOKR is your emergency contact system to help if you or your family member is missing, injured or deceased. NOKR is the central depository for Emergency Contact information in the United States. NOKR is a non-profit humanitarian organization dedicated to bridging rapid emergency contact information. NOKR was established in January 2004, for daily emergency situations.

NOKR provides the public a free proactive service to store your emergency contacts, next of kin and vital medical information that would be critical to emergency response agencies. Stored information is only accessible via a secure area that is only accessible by emergency public trust agencies that have registered with NOKR.

NOKR encourages every township, county, municipality, city, state and nation to take ownership of the NOKR. This resource belongs to you, your citizens and to your emergency agencies. Take the NOKR registration forms and add your own identifying

NOKR is your trusted safe guarding organization for all personal emergency contacts worldwide.  NOKR does not own the information we store, this information belongs to the registrants and is made available securely to registered emergency agencies during times of urgent need. NOKR is the protector of this vital bridging resource to reconnect individuals and families after urgent events.

The injury or passing of a loved one is a difficult time for families and friends. This sad time is compounded when you're not informed when a loved one is injured or passes on. This happens when Local and State Agencies are unable to locate a family member or Next Of Kin. This would happen for numerous reasons:

A lack of information about family or contacts.
A lack of resources available to search for family members, emergency contacts or "Next Of Kin".

Why should I register myself or my family with NOKR? 

NOKR is the ONLY organization globally, that provides a free emergency contact resource of this kind, to both citizens and to emergency agencies. We hope there is never a need but we do know that events in life and disasters will happen.  It's entirely your choice to decide how you will prepare yourself and your family.

Many people think that if they are carrying a driver's license, identification card or credit cards, authorities will know who their emergency contact is. These forms of identity only indicate who you are not who should be contacted in the event of urgent need. To add to this problem, often times your current identification is not updated or readily available and it becomes very difficult and complex to locate emergency contacts.
Who will speak for you or your family member when they can't? NOKR is the solution.

Here are just a few scenarios where your information will be useful.
Missing or injured child, adult or senior.

Lost child.
Those suffering from Dementia or Alzheimer's.
Accidents while traveling Nationally or Internationally.
Unconscious person unable to communicate.
Natural Disasters (Hurricanes, Earthquakes, Tornados, Floods, Tsunamis, Fires).
Terrorist Acts Nationally or Internationally.

Deceased person used to locate a next of kin or point of contact.

NOKR is currently used Nationally and Internationally. NOKR can be found on many, city, state and country websites throughout the world.

To request an emergency search contact your local Law Enforcement Agency.
