Premise Alert Program
Information from the Kendall County KenCom website:
During the summer 2009 session of the Illinois Legislature, the Illinois Premise Alert Act (PA 96-0788) was passed. It requires that Public safety agencies with Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) programs initiate a Premise Alert Program (PAP) to maintain information on individuals with special needs within their coverage area. This act was signed by the Governor on August 28, 2009.
Public safety agencies (Police, Fire and Emergency Medical Services) are required to publicize this program and accept notifications from special needs individuals, their families, or caregivers. Agencies are then required to be able to identify and be aware of these situations when responding to calls or coming across individuals. The goal is to provide more knowledgeable care through advance notice of special needs.
