Smart911: Revolutionizing Emergency Response
A new service is improving the care citizens receive upon dialing 9-1-1 and is saving emergency responders critical time as well. Douglas Kennedy reports live in the Fox New York newsroom to educate the public about the life-saving service known as Smart911.
Smart911 is a free service that allows citizens across the U.S. to create a Safety Profile for their household that includes any information they want 9-1-1 to have in the event of an emergency. Critical information such as family members, bedroom locations, utility shut off information, pet information, etc.
At a time when seconds count, being able to provide 9-1-1 with all details that could impact response the second an emergency call is placed could be the difference between life and death. For more information and to sign up with Smart911, visit: www.smart911.com
