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.

Residents can create a free personal Smart911 Safety Profile any time they have access to a computer and the Internet.

Reason No. 7: Protect pets: Even pets can benefit from a Smart911 personal Safety Profile. First responders would be grateful to know if there are pets on premise — in some instances protective pets have actually kept emergency responders from attending to a victim. Details on pets can allow responders to arrive on-site with the proper resources for safe handling. Also, in the event of a fire, knowing that your pet may also be in need of rescue and where to find them can help firefighters.

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