The Kent County Dispatch Authority is investing in the community’s safety by adopting Smart911™. Introduced at a press conference this morning, Smart911 is a nationwide service that allows individuals to create an online safety profile for their household, which provides key information to 911 call takers during an emergency. This information enables faster and more effective emergency response by law enforcement, fire and emergency medical services. When citizens who have signed up with Smart911 make 911 calls, their safety profile is automatically displayed to dispatchers, providing them with an enhanced level of information that can assist in assigning the correct public safety responders.
