PREMISE ALERT REGISTRATION FORMS: Kennedy Township Police Department in conjunction with Allegheny County District Attorney’s office, has available Premise Alert Registration Forms. Persons can register their children, parents or siblings with special needs for whom they are acting as caregivers. The forms are completed by the caregivers and given to their respective police department to be faxed to the 911 dispatch center. Information provided by the caregiver will appear before the dispatcher when an emergency call is made from the residence of the caregiver. The 911 dispatcher can then alert first responders as to any pertinent information concerning a special needs resident [whether the person is nonverbal, blind, deaf, where they tend to wander, etc.] Also in the packet given to residents are reflective stickers indicating the presence of a special needs person. These stickers can be placed on or near the front door of homes. The District Attorney’s office also has inexpensive locking devices and alarms, service dogs for autistic persons, as well as Project Lifesaver tracking devices. The more information on a special needs person we have, the better we are to serve and assist. For further information, contact Kennedy Township Police Department at 412-331-2408.
