Resolve To Be Safe In 2016: Sign Up for Smart911  
As the new year draws near, the Village's emergency communications provider, DU-COMM, in partnership with DuPage County, is urging Roselle residents to "resolve to be safe" and sign up for Smart911.

Smart911 is a free, confidential service that allows users to create a profile that is activated in participating dispatch centers when a person dials 911.
The electronic safety profile provides essential household information about family members, your home, pets and vehicles. This information will display automatically on the 911 call taker's screen when users make an emergency call. It's private and secure, and users control what information is in their profile.

Because more than 70% of
911 calls come from mobile phones, the phone's exact location can't always be determined by GPS from a cell tower. Smart911's enhanced service displays the listed address of the mobile phone in the profile and can track the call via GPS, even if the call is disconnected. 
What information can be included in a Smart911 Profile?
Anything a user thinks could be useful, including:
  • Family members' ages, photos or physical descriptions.
  • Information about their home, including address, utility shutoff valves and keyholders.
  • Medical information, such as medications, medical conditions or disabilities.
  • Special considerations like language restrictions, restraining orders or rescue notes.
The cost of Smart911 software in DuPage is supported through the 911 surcharge on phone bills. Information provided is confidential and available only to emergency responders during a 911 call. Learn more about Smart911 on the DuPage ETSB website.
