SIGN UP FOR NEW SMART 911 FREE SERVICE
Smart911 is a free service that allows citizens across the U.S. to create a Safety Profile for their household that includes any information they want 9-1-1 to have in the event of an emergency. Then, when anyone in that household dials 9-1-1 from a phone associated with their Safety Profile, their profile is immediately displayed to the 9-1-1 call taker, providing additional information that can be used to facilitate the proper response to the proper location. At a time when seconds count, being able to provide 9-1-1 with all details that could impact response the second an emergency call is placed could be the difference between life and death.
Responders can be aware of many details they would not have known previously. Fire crews can arrive at a house fire knowing how many people live in the home and the location of bedrooms; EMS can be advised of allergies or specific medical conditions and law enforcement can have the photo of a missing child in seconds rather than minutes or hours.
Smart911 is a national service and is currently available in several Florida counties including Jackson, Hamilton, Lafayette, Union, Taylor, Gilchrist, Lake, Levy, Dixie & Collier.
Citizens are encouraged to create their Safety Profile with Smart911 today to have their information immediately available to 9-1-1. Smart911 data is private, secure, only used for emergency responses and is available to the 9-1-1 system in the event of an emergency call.
