FREEHOLDER JONATHAN YOUNG INVITES OUR SENIORS TO A MEETING ABOUT
SMART 911 AND TEXT 911
THIS PROGRAM COULD POTENTIALLY SAVE LIVES AND
PREVENT DELAY IN CARE OR RESPONSE
WEDNESDAY, MAY 3RD – 7 PM
BARRINGTON VFW/SENIOR CENTER
LIGHT REFRESHMENTS WILL BE SERVED
The Freeholder Board is proud to announce the state’s first county-wide Smart911 system. The program will save critical time in emergency situations.
Smart911 is a free nationwide service that allows users to create a Smart911 Safety Profile, which provides vital information to emergency dispatchers and first responders during an emergency.
It is a voluntary registration system which allows residents and business owners to provide levels of personal information about their family, pets, vehicles and the layouts of their buildings to be used by first responders in the event of an emergency.
ALL information is encrypted and matched to the phone numbers provided by enrollees. It is only accessible to 9-1-1 dispatchers for the duration of a call made from a number registered with the system.
CAMDEN COUNTY RESIDENTS ARE ENCOURAGED TO CREATE THEIR SAFETY PROFILE WITH SMART911 TO HAVE THEIR INFORMATION AVAILABLE TO DISPATCHERS AND TO RECEIVE EMERGENCY NOTIFICATIONS. SMART911 IS PRIVATE AND SECURE, IS ONLY USED FOR EMERGENCY RESPONSES, AND ONLY MADE AVAILABLE TO THE 9-1-1 SYSTEM IN THE EVENT OF AN EMERGENCY CALL.
FREEHOLDER YOUNG WILL HOST A MEETING AT VFW 5/3 7PM WITH LIGHT REFRESHMENTS TO GO OVER THE IMPORTANCE OF SMART 911 AND TEXT 911
This is an EXTREMELY IMPORTANT service to all of our residents especially our senior community who may need a quick response. “Smart 911 can shave seconds off a rescue with valuable information. The service is provided nationwide, so it follows you wherever you go” Young said.
This program could potentially save lives if one needed to call 911 and prevent delay in care or response.
