Smart911 to Reduce Emergency Response Time in DeKalb County, GA
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.
Smart911 allows citizens to provide the department with a household safety profile that provides dispatchers with information to help understand a situation.
People can provide such information as household member names, ages and photos, disabilities and medications needed.
Anyone in Atlanta can create a free profile by visiting www.smart911.com.
