Be Smart, Be Safe

The unexpected can happen at any given point, it’s the nature of the world. That fact doesn’t need to be scary or cause you distress, however, thanks to the amazing Smart911 app. We encourage all Caroline County residents to immediately download it to their favorite smart device and get the peace of mind they deserve today. Why? It’s because the Smart911 mobile app is your guide to seamless emergency preparedness and a sort of early warning system*. Within the app, you can create an optional safety profile that gives 911 additional information for quicker response times, receive alerts about hazardous weather or traffic conditions in your area, and be placed on a vulnerable needs registry so that first responders know you will require special assistance during times of crisis. All of that and more can be found inside the incredible Smart911 app. Download it today and then contact us about our own Smart911 app review!
