Smart911 is a service that saves critical time in an emergency by allowing resident-provided safety information to be shared with first responders.  Residents can customize their profile to include any information they want the 9-1-1 call taker and first responders to have in the event of an emergency. The information you provide is private and cannot be viewed unless you place a 9-1-1 call, at which time the information will automatically be displayed to the 9-1-1 call taker.   To create a safety profile click on the Smart911 icon or go to


Text – To – 9-1-1

 You can now send text messages to 9-1-1 if unable to make a voice call.

Text-to-9-1-1 will take longer to process than voice calls because of the back and forth messaging instead of instant voice communications.

  • ·         Be brief
  • ·         Do not use abbreviations
  • ·         Do not use “texting” language
  • ·         If the situation changes and you can make a voice call, let the telecommunicator know and then dial 9-1-1.
  • ·         Text calls do not have the same location accuracy as voice calls.
  • ·         Whenever possible, people should always call 9-1-1 instead of texting.
  • ·         Texting isn’t a replacement for calling 9-1-1, it’s a less accurate alternative.


Turn Around – Don’t Drown – It’s The Law


Each year more deaths occur from flooding than any other severe weather hazard. Most people do not realize that six inches of fast-moving flood water can knock over an adult, and two feet of rushing water will carry away most vehicles, including pickups and SUVs. Pennsylvania is one of a growing number of states where you can be fined and ordered to pay expenses for ignoring Road Closure signs or barricades.
