Premise Information is information that is used to alert emergency responders of special circumstances at a specific address.
The Department of Emergency Services recently partnered with Smart911 to gather this type of information. Smart911 provides lifesaving information to a 9-1-1 Telecommunicator and first responders in an emergency. To register for Smart911
With Smart911 you sign up and create a secure Safety Profile for your household. You can add as much information in your Safety Profile as you want; for instance,
Address Information - so first responders can find you faster to help you faster
Medical Information - so first repsonders know what medications you are taking; know what your medical history is so they can treat you appropriately while they transport you to the emergency room
Family information - you add information about everyone living in your household, including emergency contact information
Your pet information - so first responders know before they get to your house that you have a pet
Vehicle information - having the description and license plate of your vehicles can help first responders can help you if you need help while in your car.
Your Smart911 Safety Profile is seen only by the 9-1-1 Telecommunicators and they forward any important information to first responders. Once you have received help, your safety profile is no longer available until the next time you call 9-1-1.
Smart911 is a nation wide program. If you are in another county or state who has also partnered with Smart911, and you call 9-1-1, your Safety Profile will be provided to that 9-1-1 Center.
