Washington Rolls Out 9-1-1 Information Service (7/12/12)
Washington, D.C., launched Smart911, a new initiative by the Office of Unified Communications (OUC). The new service will provide emergency responders with more complete information about 9-1-1 callers so they can respond to the right location, with the right personnel and the right equipment.
“Smart911 will allow our responders to save lives and resolve emergency situations much more effectively,” said Washington Mayor Vincent Gray. “This is an excellent example of how technology can improve a critical public-safety system for the benefit of all.”
Rave Mobile Safety's Smart911 is a public/private partnership enabling the creation of a critical caller database that integrates with the 9-1-1 system. Residents create a profile at www.smart911.com that is automatically displayed to 9-1-1 during emergency calls. The profile can include home and work addresses associated with mobile phone numbers, specific medical conditions and disabilities, all family members, vehicles, pets and more.
