The “Clear Alert” was established to provide the public with immediate notification when there is criminal activity, threats to public safety and/or hazardous road conditions that pose an imminent danger to citizens who are outdoors or in their vehicles. This will help first responders by reducing the need for information from the public.

How Does It Work
If you believe someone you know may be missing because of cognitive impairment please call 911 immediately so that police can conduct an initial investigation into the whereabouts of your loved one. Once police have been notified they will make every effort to find your family member as quickly as possible by checking hospitals and jails within their jurisdiction as well as contacting other law enforcement agencies in surrounding communities.
The clear alert system is a statewide program
The clear alert system is a statewide program started by the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles. The program is designed to notify Texans about severe weather, traffic and other emergencies through an electronic messaging system on their cell phones and mobile devices.
The clear alert system will be used during emergencies such as tornados, floods, fires, chemical spills and other disasters. The alerts are broadcast as text messages and will display on phones that are turned off or set to silent mode.In addition to being able to receive text messages directly from the state agency responsible for the emergency situation, Texans can sign up to receive alerts from local emergency management offices and community organizations
Silver Alert System
Texas is the first state to have a Silver Alert system, which is similar to the Amber Alert. It’s also known as the Silver Alert System.The Silver Alert Program is designed to help find missing people who may be suffering from dementia or other cognitive impairment, such as Alzheimer’s disease.
If you see an individual who appears unable to care for themselves or has been reported missing, please immediately contact your local law enforcement agency by dialing 911 and follow the prompts for reporting suspicious activity.
The Silver Alert System is intended to be used when an adult who has been reported missing by his or her family or friends exhibits signs of dementia or another cognitive impairment and there is concern that he/she may be at risk of harming themselves or others.
Criteria for initiating an Amber Alert compared to a Clear Alert
Amber Alerts are issued when a child is missing, believed to be in danger and in need of assistance. An Amber Alert is typically used when a child has been abducted.A Clear Alert is issued when an adult or child has been abducted and/or is missing but there’s no evidence that the victim has been harmed or put in danger.
Verifiable cognitive impairment
First, there must be a verifiable cognitive impairment like Alzheimer’s disease or dementia.The person has to have a medical condition that renders them unable to meet the requirements of their license. For example, they can’t drive because they have lost their vision or are unable to walk safely.
If you’re in this situation, you can apply for a Driver’s License by Mail (DLBM). DLBM lets you apply for a driver’s license without having to come into an office. You just fill out all the paperwork and send it in with any needed documentation. Once we make sure that everything is correct, we’ll send your new license back through the mail.
The first thing to do is to call the police, fire or medical emergency response number for your area.Then, there must be a credible threat to the senior citizen’s health and safety. The person who makes the call must have a good reason to believe that his or her actions are necessary to prevent injury to others or self-defense. The caller must also be able to articulate those reasons clearly.
Arizona law allows the use of force against any intruder who enters someone’s home without permission. I recommend that you call 911 before using force against an invader. This protects you in two ways: First, it ensures that law enforcement officers will be present when they arrive at your house; second, it gives them time to respond as quickly as possible if something goes wrong during your encounter with intruders.
An AMBER Alert is what?
In 2002, in honor of Amber Hagerman, Governor Rick Perry signed the AMBER Alert, which stands for America’s Missing: Broadcast Emergency Response Alert. Hagerman was abducted and slain in Arlington when she was 9 years old.
If a law enforcement agency meets the following requirements, it may submit an AMBER Alert request:
Law enforcement believes the minor, who is 17 years old or younger, is in immediate danger. The minor was seized by an unrelated person who is at least three years older than the minor without consent from the minor’s parents or legal guardians. A preliminary inquiry confirms the kidnapping took place and rules out any other potential causes for the child’s disappearance.
The child, suspect, or used vehicle can all be found with the help of the information that has been made accessible to the public.
The Clear Alert System is used when there has been a senior citizen with an impaired mental condition who has gone missing and may be in danger.The Clear Alert System is designed to watch over the Texas elderly population so that they will not fall victim to any or any crimes..
