Help EMS treat you:
Tell Smart911 about your family’s medical issues – like heart conditions, allergies and stroke history. This way when 9-1-1 receives a call, EMS will arrive with the appropriate equipment. For those who have a family member with Alzheimer’s, Autism or who is deaf, this service helps as well. Instantly 9-1-1 knows the caller’s condition and location without having to rely on verbal communication.
Help Police protect you:
Smart911 information can help police in numerous ways. Today when a child goes missing, it takes time for police to obtain a photo of the missing child. With Smart911 police will have that photo instantly and can begin a wide scale search sooner. Additionally, this service helps police locate you if your 9-1-1 call drops for any reason. This allows the police to locate you and your family more quickly during emergencies.
Help the fire department rescue you:
With Smart911, call takers can notify firefighters of exactly how many people live in your house - including pets - to ensure that everyone is rescued during a fire. Additionally, if you live in an apartment building, firefighters will not only know the address, but the floor and apartment number as well.
Your information is 100% private.
Your family’s profile information is completely private and secure. The details you enter on our secure and protected website are only shared with 9-1-1 dispatchers and first responders in the field, and only when you or your family members dial 9-1-1.
