About the Program
The State of Illinois passed the Premise Alert Act (430 ILCS 132) in 2009 which created a database available to all citizens to store information concerning special needs that would be available to emergency responders through their dispatch agency. Residents may complete a short form and mail or drop off the form at any fire or police station. The confidential information is then forwarded to DuPage Emergency Communications and then made available to emergency responders.
This program can save valuable time in an emergency, can expedite treatment and help ensure accurate information is passed on to other caregivers. Access the Premise Alert Program form or visit the DuPage Public Safety Communications website. You can also view a complete text of the Premise Alert Program law.
