Medford Mayor McGlynn Joins NECN to Discuss Smart911
Medford Becomes the First City in Massachusetts to Improve the Quality and Timing of Response to Emergencies with Smart911
Calling 9-1-1 is meant to get you quick action in an emergency. One Massachusetts community is upping the response-level with a new program called “Smart911.” Medford Mayor Michael McGlynn joins NECN to discuss the city’s recent implementation of the new service.
People can now go to smart911.com and set up their own forms with personalized information, such and medications and allergens. If people call 9-1-1 in another community that also uses the system, that information will be immediately accessible, providing better emergency response.
