RAVE Alert works in conjunction with Smart911 – 2 great programs with 1 profile!
Smart911 is a comprehensive software program that facilitates data and communications in event of a 9-1-1 call. With Smart911, Michiganders can create an extensive online profile, which displays to dispatchers when a 9-1-1 call is made. Critical information such as home address, bedroom location, pet information, medical details, and whether households include people with dementia or children with autism can all be provided and improve response. Smart911 is now a statewide deployment, so it can be a helpful resource when travelling anywhere in Michigan. More info on Smart911 is here.
