Aiken County residents can now sign up for a free service called Smart911 that provides vital information to emergency responders when you call 911. Smart911 is a free service that allows residents to provide critical information, such as emergency contacts, children's photos or medical conditions, on a secure website for access by emergency responders.
Tell Smart911 about your family’s medical issues – like heart conditions, allergies and stroke history. This way when 9-1-1 receives a call, EMS will arrive with the appropriate equipment. For those who have a family member with Alzheimer's, Autism or who is deaf, this service helps as well. Instantly 9-1-1 knows the caller's condition and location without having to rely on verbal communication.
Smart911 information can help police in numerous ways. Today when a child goes missing, it takes time for police to obtain a photo of the missing child. With Smart911 police will have that photo instantly and can begin a wide scale search sooner. Additionally, this service helps police locate you if your 9-1-1 call drops for any reason. This allows the police to locate you and your family more quickly during emergencies.
With Smart911, call takers can notify firefighters of exactly how many people live in your house - including pets - to ensure that everyone is rescued during a fire. Additionally, if you live in an apartment building, firefighters will not only know the address, but the floor and apartment number as well.
Your family's profile information is completely private and secure. The details you enter on our secure and protected website are only shared with 9-1-1 dispatchers and first responders in the field, and only when you or your family members dial 9-1-1.
