With Smart911, you can provide 9-1-1 call takers and first responders with critical information that you want them to know in any kind of emergency.
When you call 911 the call taker will see a display screen showing the information that you provided through your Smart911 profile. This information can include your address, medical information, home information, description of pets and vehicles and emergency contacts. You can provide as much or as little information as you like.
Additionally, residents can sign up through Smart911 to receive emergency notifications such as weather and traffic alerts.
Although Smart911 is new to Park Ridge, it is a national service. This means that your Smart911 Safety Profile travels with you and is visible to any participating 911 center nationwide. Residents can learn more and sign up for Smart911 by going to www.smart911.com.
