The City of Fishers utilizes Smart 911, a free information sharing app, to view emergency information for all residents of the city, and importantly, our special needs members, allowing emergency responders the ability to have valuable information at our fingertips as we are en route to your emergency.
This system allows users to include additional information such as vehicle descriptions, medications, medical emergency contacts and proxies, home floor plans, and pet information. Smart911 is encrypted and secure and all personal information can only be accessed by first responders when an emergency event has been triggered with a call for assistance by the application user.
