Are You Ready For Emergencies?

How does Smart911 help?

Better informed first responders are better equipped to help you. With Smart911, paramedics are aware of critical medical information such as Alzheimer's or allergies. Police have children's photos in case of an Amber Alert and Fire Fighters know household details, ensuring that everyone is rescued during an evacuation—even pets.

How does Smart911 work?

The software provides citizens with the ability to enter information that they want to make available to 911 emergency telecommunicators through a secure website at Smart911 then delivers this information automatically with any 911 call placed within Boone County to the emergency telecommunicator's work station at the Emergency Communications Center.

What details are shared with responders?

You decide. Smart911 allows you to store any critical care and emergency rescue information online in advance of any emergency. Information can include children's photos, medical conditions, home addresses of mobile phone callers, disabilities or other rescue-related information. Visit the Smart911 FAQ for more information.

How do I register?

The registration process is quick and easy: just four simple steps! After registering you will have a chance to add optional information or edit the information you provided. It is important to complete every step as the service will not work until you have added and confirmed a phone number.
