Video Shows Advantages of Signing up for Smart 911

The Woodridge Police Department recently posted a video that briefly explains the Smart911 service in both English and American Sign Language. The video touches on the advantages of signing up for the service, particularly for those that are deaf or hard of hearing, and encourages residents to enroll. According to Jeff Prail, Arkansas Association of the Deaf, “Currently, when a resident who is deaf or hard of hearing needs to contact 9-1-1, they would use methods such as a relay service or TTY, which takes time and can delay emergency response. With Smart911, these residents can dial 9-1-1 directly and dispatchers are immediately notified that they are being contacted by a resident with a hearing disability who is unable to communicate.”
