The Personal Alert Program is a free and voluntary program designed to aid First Responders with quick access to critical information to assist in dealing with individuals with disabilities.
This program is designed to help individuals in our community who may have difficulty communicating with First Responders. Individuals who may benefit from the program include individuals with Autism, Dementia, Alzheimer’s, Downs Syndrome, elders or any individual with special needs.
The Personal Alert Program registry will aid First Responders by providing information including emergency contact information, detailed physical description, the individual’s routines, behaviors, communication abilities, photographs, and other helpful information that may assist First Responders while they are interacting with the individual. This information is provided by parents, guardians, or caretakers and will be used by the Billerica Police, Fire, and Emergency Medical Services to assist in caring for and/or locating individuals with special needs. All information is strictly confidential and will only be shared with responding personnel.
