Smart911 Safety Profile
Smart911 is a service that provides critical information on 911 callers to first responders that citizens may be unable to share in the event of an emergency. Interested residents may register at the following link: Smart 911 Registration
Over 80% of call made to a 911 system come from cellular phones. When you dial 911 from a mobile phone, the 911 call takers have very little information to help you – only a phone number and a very general sense of location. With Smart911, you can provide 911 call takers and first responders with critical information you might want them to know in any kind of emergency.
When you call 911, your Smart911 Safety Profile displays on the 911 screen and the 911 call takers can view your addresses, medical information, home information, other family members, a description of pets and vehicles, and emergency contacts. You can provide as much or as little information as you like and modify it at any time.
Smart911, meaning that a Safety Profile travels with you and is visible to any participating 911 center nationwide.
The service is free, private and secure. Millburn Township Public Safety Officials ask residents to create Safety Profile today to assist our local first responders.
