Smart911 Enhancing Safety in DeKalb County, GA


DeKalb County has launched a new service that will allow citizens to create a Safety Profile which first responders can use to quickly gather details about the 9-1-1 caller during an emergency.

County police spokeswoman Mekka Parish says Smart911 is a national public safety service that gives users the chance to provide and store their vital details before an emergency.

Officials say the program could help emergency responders know how many people live in a building when they’re responding to a fire, or alert EMS worker to potential allergies and medical conditions.
