York County's 911 Center launched Smart911 in October, 2015. This program allows residents to provide advance information to their 911 dispatchers that will help improve the speed and efficiency of an emergency response.
Parents, for example, can advise whether a child has certain allergies, medical conditions or physical/developmental limitations that might impact how EMS treats the child.
Senior citizens, or their families, can indicate if there is someone in a home that may be unable to escape in an emergency due to a mobility problem.
