Without Smart911 dispatchers are only aware of a phone number, and minimal location data.
Smart911 is a free service where users create a safety profile by entering vital data they want made available about themselves, family, residence and even pets.
Data given can include photos, and information regarding medical conditions, allergies, disabilities and/or special needs, home addresses of cell phone callers and floor plans to name a few. Smart911 delivers this information automatically to dispatchers, who then enable responders to be more successful with access to critical health and logistical information before arriving at the scene of an emergency.
