Smart911 Safety Profile service is available to all Arkansans through an act of the State Legislature. The service is paid for, it is ready for residents to use – all that needs be done is for individuals to sign up .

Reason No. 3 – Medical Emergencies: If you have an existing medical condition or take medications, the sooner emergency medical technicians know about them the sooner effective medical treatment can begin.

Through your profile, Smart911 can instantly provide EMTs any medical notes you provide and precise treatment will not be delayed because you cannot speak or a family member does not know or remember your information.

Remember Reason No. 1 - mobile telephone service, unlike landline service, does not provide name and address for 911 calls. As mobile service increases, so do the calls 911 dispatchers receive without location information, increasing the time it takes to learn caller locations – and most 911 calls are made from home.

Create your Smart911 Safety Profile online at www.smart911.com - just sign in and then follow the instructions.
