How does the system work?
It’s easy! Residents sign up at www.911.org to create their own emergency profile that lists information about their home and their loved ones.
If a resident has to call 9-1-1, their emergency profile is automatically sent to the 9-1-1 call center that serves the area from which the call was made.
Your emergency profile is only available to the 9-1-1 agencies within the jurisdictions who we serve. www.911.org
