Smart911 is a tool that is used by 9-1-1 centers and first-responders in the instance that you, the citizen, have an emergency and need to dial 9-1-1.
Smart911 is a completely free, secure way to provide information to emergency services that otherwise would not be available to them. Things such as addresses, phone numbers, premise and household information, medical conditions and even photos of your loved ones (yes, even your pets).
When you dial 9-1-1 (and have a Smart911 profile), information is automatically displayed to the 9-1-1 center that receives your call. The information in your profile is safe. No one can arbitrarily access your profile and the information is only displayed if you initiate a call.
