Over 70% of calls made to 9-1-1 come from mobile phones.
When you dial 9-1-1 from a mobile phone, the 9-1-1 call takers have very little information to help you – only your phone number and a very general sense of your location.
This does not bode well in an emergency when seconds count, particularly if you or your loved ones have medical conditions, or if there is a fire.
With Smart911, both 9-1-1 call takers and first responders know exactly what you want them to know in any kind of emergency from your personal profile you have entered into the system.
Smart 911 is a valuable service offered to DuPage County residents.
