Smart 911

The state of Arkansas has paid for state participation in Smart 911 (see release)This may be of great interest to your family members.

Under the Smart 911 system, Arkansans can go online FOR FREE and register their cell phone number, along with an address, so first responders will know exactly where they live. People also can create a “safety profile” that lists important information, such as whether a household member has autism, a mental illness, special needs, or allergies to certain medications. The safety profile will be available to dispatchers so they can relay information to paramedics or police officers before they arrive.
