The DuPage County Emergency Telephone System Board (ETSB) now offers a new service called Smart911. By participating in this new service, first responders, Police, Fire and EMTs will have important information to help them address your emergency.
Smart911 is supported by existing 9-1-1 fees and is free to register. Your family’s profile information is completely private and secure. The details you enter on the secure and protected website are only shared with 9-1-1 dispatchers and first responders in the field, and only when you or a family member dial 9-1-1.
HELP Police Protect You: When a child goes missing it takes time for Police to obtain a photo of the missing child. With Smart911, Police have that photo instantly and are better prepared to begin a wide scale search. If your 9-1-1 call is dropped for any reason, this service helps Police locate and assist you and your family during emergencies.
HELP EMS Treat You: By participating in this service you can relay your family’s medical issues such as - heart conditions, allergies, and stroke history. When 9-1-1 receives a call, EMS will arrive with the appropriate equipment. For those who have a family member with Alzheimer’s, Autism or who is deaf, this service helps as well. Instantly, 9-1-1 knows the caller’s condition and location without having to rely on verbal communication.
HELP the Fire Dept. Rescue You: With Smart911, call takers can notify firefighters of exactly how many people live in your home, including pets, to ensure that everyone is rescued during a fire. Additionally, if you live in an apartment building, firefighters will not only know the address, but the floor and apartment number as well.
