Smart911 Invites Citizens To Be Smart: Take The 9-1-1 Challenge To Support 9-1-1 Education Month

FRAMINGHAM, Mass., April 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Smart911 kicked off a "9-1-1 Challenge" campaign today to support 9-1-1 Education Month, taking place throughout April. Promoted on the national public safety service's website – www.smart911.com/911challenge – the 9-1-1 Challenge offers safety tips to educate individuals and families on what they should know when calling 9-1-1, as well as ways to inspire others to better prepare for such situations and help emergency responders. Smart911 allows citizens to create a free Safety Profile online with information on their household they want 9-1-1 to have during an emergency call; details a dispatcher can quickly send to responders in the field for fast, more effective service.

"It's 9-1-1 Education Month, and to celebrate this, our goal is to share knowledge and invite all citizens to tell nine people one safety tip that will inspire one action resulting in increased emergency preparedness and overall safer communities," said Smart911 Community Marketing Manager, Jessica Olson. "The 9-1-1 Challenge also features 'Smart Tips to Keep Your Family Safe,' an eBook that can be downloaded free at the website. And naturally, one of the best things a person can do to help their families be safer and better prepared is to take just a few moments and create a Smart911 Safety Profile."

A Smart911 Safety Profile can include data about an individual, family, a residence, even pets, ranging from details on medical conditions, disabilities and special needs to home addresses associated with mobile phones, utilities, emergency contacts and more. As a result, fire crews can be aware of how many people live at a home and the location of bedrooms and gas valves. EMS can know about specific conditions for fast, precise medical treatment. And because profiles can contain photos, in the event of a missing child, police can gain an advantage, receiving critical information in seconds versus hours.
