Smart911 is now available to all Lake Foresters.  Smart911 is a free service that allows individuals and families to sign up online to provide key information to 9-1-1 call takers during an emergency.

 

Smart911 allows you to create a Safety Profile at www.smart911.com for their households that includes any information they want 9-1-1 and response teams to have in the event of an emergency. When you makes an emergency call, your Safety Profile is automatically displayed to the 9-1-1 call taker, allowing them to send the right response teams to the right location with the right information.

 

With Smart911, residents can link both home and work addresses to mobile phones, which can be passed on to responders in the field for more a detailed, rapid response.  Additional information-- including pets in the home, vehicle details in the event of an accident, and even emergency contacts--can all be included in a Safety Profile.  All information is optional and you have the ability to choose what details you would like to include. 

 

Smart911 is currently available in 40 states and more than 1,500 municipalities across the country, and has been credited with positively impacting emergency outcomes including a missing child where the girl’s photo and physical description were immediately available to 9-1-1 and responders, as well as a heart attack victim where an address and medical notes allowed responders to be dispatched to his location quickly. 

 

Residents are encouraged to create their Safety Profile with Smart911 today to have information immediately available to 9-1-1 and to receive emergency notifications. Smart911 is private and secure, is only used for emergency responses, and only made available to the 9-1-1 system in the event of an emergency call.
