Premise Alert Program
Premise Alert Program Notification Form
The Illinois Premise Alert Program (Public Act 096-0788) provides for Public Safety Agencies in the State of Illinois to allow people with special needs to provide information to police, fire and EMS personnel to be kept in a database. The information can then be provided to responders dealing with situations involving the Special Needs individuals.
The purpose of this program is to offer guidance and direction to the public safety workers in responding to and assisting those people with special needs or disabilities or both with whom they will have contact in the performance of their duties and responsibilities.
