National Silver Alert Program

What is the Silver Alert Program?

Silver Alert is modeled after the Amber Alert; It is an emergency system in which law enforcement can broadcast regional or statewide alerts for missing seniors and/or other adults with Alzheimer’s or other cognitive disorders. A growing number of states are enacting laws that call for the development of the Silver Alert program and some have implemented their own notification systems.

The National Silver Alert Program:
• Is a FREE, national, online registration program.
• Can speak for you when you cannot.
• Is open to ALL Senior Citizens and individuals with Alzheimer’s, Autism, Down’s Syndrome, brain injuries and other cognitive disorders, regardless of age.
• Provides a safe and secure place to store vital personal, medical, health and caregiver information which will be easily accessible in the event of an emergency.
