The Premise Alert Program (PAP) seeks to provide individuals with disabilities or special needs the same access to public safety services that is provided to all citizens. The Premise Alert Program defines "disability" as an individual's physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more of the major life activities. The PAP defines "special needs" as those individuals who have or are at an 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.
What Information Is Stored?
