Morgan County 911 is looking into implement software that will help first responders be more informed when they arrive at an emergency.
Morgan 911 Director Jeanie Pharis said citizens, at no cost, could set up a profile at Smart911.com, and when they dial 911, the dispatcher would see the personal information provided.
She said the information is volunteered by the citizen and can include photos, address, medical conditions, family members, emergency contacts and pets in the house. She said the information would be relayed from the dispatcher to the responders. She presented the proposal to Morgan 911 board members Thursday afternoon.
After the meeting, Tyler Stinson with Lifeguard Ambulance Service said he was encouraged to hear the county might acquire Smart 911 technology.
