Please join us on Friday, January 7 at 6 PM, EST via Zoom for our monthly
chapter meeting. Recognizing the recent severe weather and that during
emergencies, receiving and providing critical information quickly to first
responders is essential, our topic will be how to sign up for and use the
SMART911 services. Did you know that over 80% 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 is a serious problem in an
emergency when seconds count, particularly if you or your loved ones have
medical conditions, or are unable to safely speak. The solution is SMART911.


Smart911 Saves Time And Saves Lives:


With Smart911, you can provide 9-1-1 call takers and first responders
critical information you want them to know in any kind of emergency. When
you call 9-1-1, your Smart911 Safety Profile displays on the 9-1-1 screen
and the 9-1-1 call takers can view your addresses, medical information, home
information, description of pets and vehicles, and emergency contacts. You
can provide as much or as little information as you like.  


Please make plans to attend and learn about this invaluable resource. The
Zoom link will be provided 24-48 hours prior to the meeting.
