Camden County has joined a free nationwide service that allows gives emergency responders and dispatchers access to vital information in emergency situations. Officials on Wednesday said Smart911 saves critical time, and they are encouraging residents to sign up for it.

Residents in one part of South Jersey can now take advantage of a new, enhanced 911 system that could wind up saving their lives — or the lives of loved ones. It’s called smart911. “It’s a new public safety technology that allows individuals, families, businesses, even schools to prepare in advance for an emergency,” said Todd Miller, vice president of public safety at Rave Mobile Safety, the company that developed smart911.
Camden County emergency dispatchers will be able to tailor their approaches to people in need of aid through a new information service that county officials say is the first of its kind in South Jersey.
Called Smart911, the voluntary registration system allows residents and business owners to provide levels of personal information about their family, pets, vehicles, and the layouts of their buildings to be used by first responders in the event of an emergency.
Public safety officials in the Cities of Eastpointe, Roseville, and St. Clair Shores announced today that Smart911 is now available to all individuals within the three cities. Smart911 is a free service available across the Country, which allows individuals and families to sign up online to provide key information to 9-1-1 call takers during an emergency.
