New Campaign Provides COVID-19 Awareness for First Responders
As Hamilton County responds to the spread of COVID-19, public health and safety officials strongly encourage the community to sign up for the Smart911 national safety profile registry. The free service allows individuals and families to provide critical medical information to 9-1-1 and first responders.
Hamilton County is launching the “Take Control, Let Us Know” campaign to empower the community to provide valuable and accurate health data that increases the awareness of 9-1-1 and first responders to an individual’s risk level for COVID-19.
“Participants can self-identify if they are under quarantine, and whether it is self-imposed or directed by a health professional,” said Jeff Schemmer, Executive Director of Hamilton County Communications. “The Smart911 App also allows quarantined individuals to receive check-in messages on their health status. Individuals who sign up will receive tailored alerts based on their specific needs and geographic location.”
Individuals can create a Smart911 Safety Profile for their household at www.smart911.com or on the Smart911 App.
