Illinois Premise Alert Program
Release date: 3/21/2010
The Illinois Premise Alert Program Act (96-0788) became law in 2009. This Act is to ensure that consistently high levels of public safety services are available to all members of the State of Illinois, including people who may require special consideration in order to access services. This program shall seek to afford people with disabilities and/or special needs the same level of public safety services while alerting public safety responders to individuals with special needs.
If you live or work within the Village of Streamwood and complete a permission slip about your special needs, your information will be placed on file with our dispatch center. Your name, home or work address, telephone number, and information about your disability or special needs will enable emergency personnel to recognize that your call may require special handling.
This information will be entered into our Computer-Aided Dispatch (CAD) database. When a telecommunicator types in an address and an Illinois Premise Alert has been attached to that address, the telecommunicator will observe the additional information disclosed on your permission slip.
Your information will remain confidential and used only by our Police and Fire Department personnel who serve the Village of Streamwood. The provision of special needs information will not result in preferential treatment.
If you have a family member or relative that you would like to enroll in the Illinois Premise Alert Program, please contact the Streamwood Police Department at 630-736-3700 or visit our offices at 401 E. Irving Park Road. The form can also be found on our website at www.streamwood.org.
