What is the reason for this program?
The Illinois Premise Alert Program Act allows individuals with special needs, their families or caregivers, to provide information to police, fire and EMS personnel describing what special considerations may be required when responding to that individual’s residence or place of work. Read a copy of the PAP Act.
Do I qualify as a Special Needs person?

“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.
