A Message From the Boonton Township Police Department

Boonton Township Police Offers Free Enhanced 9-1-1 Service to Residents

Do you have a disabled person living in your home? If responding to your home, will our first responders encounter an aggressive pet? Where is the shut-off valve to your natural gas flow? If these are questions that you may want emergency personnel to know in the event of an emergency, then we urge you to participate in the Boonton Township Police “Smart 9-1-1” initiative.

Did you know that more than 70 percent of emergency 9-1-1 calls come from mobile phones? When dialing 9-1-1 from a mobile phone, the 9-1-1 call takers have little information to help you, only your phone number and a general sense of your location. However, Boonton Township residents can now avail themselves of the new and free Smart 911 service, from either mobile phones or your landline. This technology gives first responders key information that can make the difference between life and death in an emergency.

Smart 911 allows our Boonton Township residents to create a Safety Profile at www.smart911.com for their household that includes vital information that you want 9-1-1 call takers and Boonton Township emergency responders to have in the event of an emergency. Residents can offer as much or as little personal or business information as they wish. When a person makes an emergency call, their Smart 911 Safety Profile transmits to the 9- 1-1 center, allowing the 9-1-1 call taker to send the right response teams to the right location and with the right information. This technology also allows for improved 911 location tracking information, as a supplement to any existing information you may choose to provide. This important GPS feature is vital in regards to locating 911 calls which are placed through a cell phone. This new location feature is much more accurate and allows first responders to locate a caller’s location to within a few yards, as opposed to prior triangulation technology which can be less precise.

Through the Smart 911 program, first responders can be aware of many details they would not have known previously. For example, fire crews can arrive at a house fire knowing how many people live in the home and the location of bedrooms; EMS can be aware of allergies or specific medical conditions of residents; and our police officers can access photos of a missing child in seconds rather than minutes or hours. Smart 911 is FREE. Your information is secure, accessible only to a 9-1-1 call taker when you dial 9-1-1. This service can provide fast and efficient emergency services to you and your family. For more information on this valuable program, please visit our website at www.btpolice.org.

This service also allows residents to create a safety profile which can include any information they would like to share with first responders during an emergency.
