The Cary Police Department has recently made the Premise Alert Program document available online. The program is designed to assist residents or loved ones with special needs in the event of an emergency.
The free Illinois Premise Alert Program allows individuals with disabilities or special needs and their families or caregivers to register with police, fire and ambulance agencies.
The information provided will supply these agencies with potentially life-saving information about their conditions if called upon to provide emergency service.
By completing a form available on the Village's website at www.caryillinois.com, or by obtaining it from SEECOM, residents can have their address flagged with the particular special needs of themselves or a family member, enabling the dispatcher to quickly inform public safety personnel of the nature of the problem.
Anyone who has a special need, health challenge or disability such as, but not limited to, Alzheimer's disease, autism, mental health challenges or a complex or rare medical condition who would like first responders such as the police, ambulance and fire protection district to know of their special needs can register with the program.
This information only will be shared with emergency personnel.
For more information, contact the at (847) 639-2341.
