Premise Alert Program
Illinois Premise Alert Program Protects Disabled & Special Needs Residents
The Illinois Premise Alert Program (Public Act 96-0788) allows people with special needs to provide information to police, fire, and EMS personnel to be stored in a database for use in an emergency situation. The information can then be provided to responders dealing with situations involving the special needs individuals.
The information provided will be kept confidential and used only to provide police, fire, and EMS personnel with the information needed to deal with situations or emergencies involving a special needs person. The information will expire 2 years after the date it was submitted and will no longer be maintained in the database. You may update or renew it at any time by completing and submitting the Premise Alert Program Notification Form (PDF).
No Preferential Treatment
Individuals must understand that the information provided to the Premise Alert Program will not result in any type of preferential treatment to the individual and that the Village of Flossmoor, its Fire Department, nor will any other responding agencies be held liable for duties relating to the reporting of special needs individuals.
For the purposes of the Premise Alert program "disability" and "special needs individual" are defined as:
- Disability means an individual's physical or mental impairment substantially limits 1 or more of the major life activities, a record of such impairment, or when the individual is regarded as having such an impairment.
- 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.
