Premise Alert Program Notification

During the Summer 2009 session of the Illinois Legislature, the Illinois Premise Alert Act (ILPAA) PA96‐0788) was passed which requires Public Safety agencies with Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) programs to initiate a Premise Alert Program (PAP) to maintain information on individuals with special needs within their coverage area. This act was signed by Governor Quinn on August 28, 2009.

The Illinois Premise Alert Program (Public Act 96‐0788) provides for Public Safety agencies in the State of Illinois to allow people with special needs to provide information to Fire, Emergency Medical Services
(EMS), and Police personnel to be kept in a database. The information can then be provided to responders dealing with situations involving special needs individuals.

Public Safety agencies are required to publicize and accept notifications from the individuals, their families, or caregivers. Agencies are then required to be able to identify and be aware of these situations when responding to calls or coming across individuals.

Residences of the Village of North Aurora and the North Aurora Fire Protection District can contact the North Aurora Fire Department at 630‐897‐9698 for a “Premise Alert Program Notification Form” or print one from our website. Once the form has been completed, it must be returned to either North Aurora Fire Station (2 N. Monroe Street or 2201 Tanner Road). The Special Needs information expires two (2) years after the data is submitted.

Programs for Seniors 65+

Remembering When Program

A Fire and Fall Prevention Program for Older Adults was developed by NFPA’s Center for High-Risk Outreach and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to help older adults live safely at home for as long as possible.

Fact: At age 65, older adults are twice as likely to be killed or injured by fires or fall compared to the population at large.

Fact: Thirty percent of people age 65 and older are involved in falls each year, the leading cause of death from unintentional injury in the home.

Fact: In the U.S. and Canada, adults age 65 and older make up about 12 percent  of the population – and their numbers are increasing.

“Remembering When” is centered around sixteen (16) key safety messages – eight fire prevention and  eight fall prevention – this program generally takes  about one  hour to complete with plenty of time for questions and answers.

Vial of Life Program

This program is designed to aid in the speed of emergency care if the patient is unable to speak or respond to us in their time of need. Our vials come complete with information sheet on how the program is performed, medical information sheet with important contact numbers and Dr’s orders section. An extra sticker is also provided to place on your refrigerator door so that emergency personnel are able to locate the vial.

Home Fire Safety Inspections

Home surveys are conducted on an advisory basis only. When asked, we will provide tips and instruct the homeowner on a home fire escape plan. This plan should include multiple ways out of the house, designating a family meeting place, and discussion of smoke detector placement.

If you have any questions, please call 630-897-9698.

Car Seat Installation

The North Aurora Fire Department offers free car seat checks and installations. Car seats and boosters provide protection for infants and children in a crash, yet car crashes are a leading cause of death for children ages 1 to 13. That’s why it’s so important to choose and use the right car seat correctly every time your child is in the car. We have certified Car Seat Technicians on staff to make sure your child is properly sized and restrained while traveling in a motor vehicle.

A typical car seat check takes about 30-45 minutes.

For more information, or to schedule a car seat inspection, call (630)897-9698 Ext: 16
