Premise Alert Program

Under the Illinois Premise Alert Program Act (430 ILCS 132), residents with special needs or disabilities are encouraged to provide information to be used as guidance and provide assistance to first responders in the performance of their duties.

Information provided to the Fire or Police departments will be entered into the Premise Alert Database and shall remain confidential.

Residents will not receive any type of preferential treatment by providing information to the Premise Alert Program. First-responders will not be held liable for duties relating to the reporting of the person with special needs or disabilities.

For the purpose of the Premise Alert Program "disability" and "special needs individuals" are defined as follows:
  • "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.
  • "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 individuals" includes, but is not limited to, an individual with a medical impairment that requires the use of pressurized oxygen.
