Illinois Premise Alert Program

                      

What is the reason for this program?

The Illinois Premise Alert Program Act (430 ILCS 132/) allows individuals with special needs, their families or caregivers, to provide information to fire and EMS personnel describing what special considerations may be required when responding to that individual’s residence or place of work.  Click here to read a copy of the PAP Act.

Do I qualify as a Special Needs person?

As quoted from the Premise Alert Program

“Disability” means an individual’s physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more of the major life activities; a record of such impairment; or when the individual is regarded as having such impairment.

"Disability" includes, but is not limited to, a medical impairment that requires the use of pressurized oxygen.

“Special Needs Individuals” means those individuals who have or are at increased risk for a chronic physical, developmental, behavioral, or emotional condition and who also require health and related services of a type or amount beyond that required by individuals generally.

"Special needs individual" includes, but is not limited to, an individual with a medical impairment that requires the use of pressurized oxygen.

Where is the information stored?

The information is stored in our 9-1-1 communication center’s database and will be kept there for a period of three (3) months.  You can submit your information again when this time period is up. All information given, is kept confidential and only given out to emergency personnel while responding to a location in their coverage area.
