    More than 70 percent of calls made to emergency 9-1-1 come from mobile phones. When dialing 9-1-1 from a mobile phone, the 9-1-1 call takers have little information to help you – only your phone number and a general sense of your location. 

    Do you have a disabled person living in your home? Will first responders encounter an aggressive pet?  Where is the shut-off valve to your natural gas flow?

    Smart911 allows residents to create a Safety Profile at for their household that includes vital information that you want 9-1-1 call takers and emergency responders to have in the event of an emergency.
