A new service is available to Cache Valley, Utah residents who find themselves calling 911 with an emergency.

Smart911 is a web-based platform that can save critical time in an emergency when seconds can be the difference between life and death.

The program gives users the option of creating a profile that gives dispatchers additional pieces of information that might be helpful in an emergency.

Smart911 is a web-based platform that can save critical time in an emergency when seconds can be the difference between life and death.
The program gives users the option of creating a profile that gives dispatchers additional pieces of information that might be helpful in an emergency.

For example, Shelley Peterson, director of Logan City Police Department Communications Division, said she herself has noted the location of a large propane tank on her property in case there is a fire at her home.

Dispatchers say they received a call from someone last week who noted multiple family members with severe bee allergies. If the 911 caller is having a severe reaction and is unable to speak but can make the call, the dispatcher has this information and can alert medical responders, Peterson said.
“The information is only available when a 911 call is placed. It is not searchable, it is private and secure and it is only used when someone calls 911,” Peterson said.
