Dunwoody, have you registered for Smart 911?

Dunwoody is now offering a service titled “Smart911”. Once you sign up at, first responders will be provided important information that will help them address your emergency.

This information, including photos, medical issues and other important information, can assist the Police, Fire and EMS in locating and assisting you. This information is entered on a private and secure web-site, and will only be used by the 9-1-1 dispatchers and emergency responders in the field.  This is a free service brought to you by the City of Dunwoody.

What to expect during the registration process: Smart911-Creating a Safety Profile
Download your Smart911 Registration Card and don't forget to update your emergency info every 6mos.

What happens when you or your child needs to dial 9-1-1 in an emergency?  Will they be able to tell the dispatcher what is wrong? Or where you are?  What if you are in your car?

Now you can ensure that 9-1-1 will have that information as soon as you dial.  Build your family’s safety profile with Smart911 and ensure that your home address and other vital details are made available to 9-1-1 and first responders.

Did you know if you call 9-1-1 from your cell phone, emergency responders are not always able to track your location? Build your family’s Safety Profile with Smart911 and register your cell phone to your home address.
