SNOHOMISH COUNTY– Smart911 Can Also Help Those with Disabilities in an Emergency
Thanks to Leslie for pointing out that Smart911 is great for
the Deaf. If you are deaf or hard of hearing you can make a note of that in
your profile, then agencies with Smart911, like SNOPAC, will know that if you
call 911 that you need help and that your call is not a dropped call or a crank
call. Also, there is a texting capability within Smart911 that can allow a deaf
or hard of hearing individual to communicate with SNOPAC.
People with other disabilities, such as limited mobility or
blindness, can make a note in their profile so that first responders can be
better prepared when they arrive on the scene.
