If anyone has ever called 911 in an emergency, you know that a series of questions is usually asked before help is dispatched. But a new program is available and is highly recommended for victims of abuse… because the information is provided as a precaution prior to an emergency. Smart911 allows people to sign up for the update to the 911 emergency system. Victims of abuse who are in danger can be more prepared by providing necessary information like restraining orders, pictures of their abusers, house or vehicle information, etc. This can also be helpful to law enforcement due to the volatile nature of domestic violence cases.
Smart911 can be used for the elderly, for children’s safety, for multiple medical reasons, and for anyone who may need expedited help in an emergency. Emergency contact information and even allergies can be listed in case of an emergency. Please check this out at https://www.smart911.com/ and share this information. It could save a life.
With Smart911, both 9-1-1 call takers and first responders know exactly what you want them to know in any kind of emergency.
Did You Know?
Over 70% of calls made to 9-1-1 come from mobile phones.
When you dial 9-1-1 from a mobile phone, the 9-1-1 call takers have very little information to help you – only your phone number and a very general sense of your location.
This does not bode well in an emergency when seconds count, particularly if you or your loved ones have medical conditions, or if there is a fire.
