The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) is a state statute that allows the public to gain access to government records.
The Premise Alert Program provides first responders with medical information before they arrive at an emergency scene. Through the Premise Alert Program, citizens can inform local police and fire departments about a family member who may require special assistance or treatment at home. That could be a lifesafer for families caring for loved ones with medical problems relating to Alzheimer's, Autism, Quadriplegia, etc. Information provided to the Barrington Police and Fire departments is stored in a database and kept confidential to be used only by police, fire and emergency medical personnel responding to specified locations. This data will alert first responders to handle each specific emergency.
