Levy/Gilchrist Counties Launch Smart 911
LEVY COUNTY - 911 emergency workers may not know you're allergic to penicillan, that your dog will bite firefighters or that a gate code is needed to enter your property.
But now, some residents in North Central Florida can make that information available.
Smart911 was launched Monday in both Gilchrist and Levy Counties.
They are now two out of ten counties in Florida with the system.
Smart911 is a database that allows residents to store critical information.
That information -- like allergies, medical conditions, disabilities, number of people in the home, pets, floor plans, etc -- will be automaticlly pulled up for emergency workers
"If you are calling and you have an injury or an illness and we already know and can provide to our EMS workers that you're on specific medication, that's information they need to have before they start treatment," LLt. Scott Tummond, Leby County Sheriff's Office spokesman said.
Smart911 is free for residents where the service is in place.
