Premise Alert Program

During the summer of 2009 session of the Illinois legislature, the Illinois Premise Alert Act (ILPAA)(PA 96-078) was passed that 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 areas. This act was signed by Governor Quinn on August 28, 2009.

The Illinois Premise Alert Progam 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 individual.

The information gathered as part of the Premise Alert Program shall remain strictly confidential. The information shall be used only to provide assistance to emergency medical and police responders. No public safety worker shall knowingly violate this confidentiality clause.
