The 9-1-1 service of Smart911 allows you to create a Safety Profile for your household which will proactively provide details on your family and home that 9-1-1 may need in order to send help in the event of an emergency.
How does Smart911 work?
When you sign up for Smart911, you can create a secure Safety Profile that will display on the call takerâ€™s screen if you ever have to dial 9-1-1 in the event of an emergency. You can add as much or as little to your profile as you want â€“ the choice is yours â€“ but it is recommended to add any details you would want responders to know if you do have an emergency â€“ things like medical conditions and medications, address details, and photos of yourself, children, or elderly prone to wandering.
