FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
JOHNSON COUNTY CENTRAL DISPATCH E-911 IS LAUNCHING THE PREMISE ALERT SYSTEM
The Premise Alert Program provides families with a uniformed method to alert first responders about special needs individuals. It also provides first responders with advance knowledge, allowing for quick and educated responses during crises, evacuations, and disasters. The form is provided free of charge and can be found here: Premise Alert Program Form
Anyone who has a special need, health challenge or disability such as, but not limited to, Alzheimer’s Disease, Autism, Mental Health Challenges, or a complex or rare medical condition, who would like first responders such as police, ambulance and fire departments to know of their special needs can fill out and submit the Premise Alert Form. Submission of the form is completely voluntary. You do not have to provide any information you do not want First Responders to know or use.
Residents of Johnson County Missouri are encouraged to dial 911 when they need to report a police, fire, or medical emergency. Residents can also reach the non-emergency line for Johnson County Central Dispatch by dialing 660-747-2265.
