About the SNAP program.
SNAP (Special Needs Alert Program) assists First Responders (Police and Fire) in being more responsive during emergencies to residents of the City of Anderson with special needs. Maintained by the Anderson Police Department, the program can help first responders identify those who may have difficulty communicating due to a disability or special need, such as Alzheimer’s or dementia, autism or a speech disorder.
