I recently heard about a special feature of Nashville’s 911 Emergency System. Bonney and I are registered to provide Emergency Responders with information that will help with their emergency care and rescue efforts.
Here’s what Metro Nashville says about the new Smart 911 system.
Nashville Emergency Communications Center now offers a free, new service to improve 9-1-1 response. After you sign up, any 9-1-1 call you make will include important medical information about you or your spouse. This can help operators and first responders address any issue you may have faster and more effectively.

Supported by existing 9-1-1 fees – free to register

100% private and secure
Tell Smart911 about your family’s medical issues – like heart
conditions, allergies and stroke history. This way when 9-1-1 receives a call, EMS will arrive with the appropriate equipment. For those who have a family member with Alzheimer’s, Autism or who is deaf, this service helps as well. Instantly 9-1-1 knows the caller’s condition and location without having to rely on verbal communication.
Smart911 information can help police in numerous ways. Today when a child goes missing, it takes time for police to obtain a photo of the missing child. With Smart911 police will have that photo instantly and can begin a wide scale search sooner. Additionally, this service helps police locate you if your 9-1-1 call drops for any reason. This allows the police to locate you and your family more quickly during emergencies.
Help the Fire department rescue you:
Your information is 100% private.
Your family’s profile information is completely private and secure. The details you enter on our secure and protected website are only shared with 9-1-1 dispatchers and first responders in the field, and only when you or your family members dial 9-1-1.
Cloister residents may want to consider using this service. It may save your life.
