Smart911 to Reduce Emergency Response Time in DeKalb County, GA


atlanta news.2The Atlanta Police Department has unveiled a system it says will greatly improve the ability of first responders to help people who need help from police, fire and emergency services.

City officials say the new Smart911 and the Everbridge emergency and incident notification system will allow 911 call takers and dispatchers to gather information on citizens that will help first responders and allow them to deliver public safety alerts.

People can provide such information as household member names, ages and photos, disabilities and medications needed.
