Please sign up for Smart 911.


New Canaan now offers a service that helps you when you need to dial 9-1-1.  Smart911 allows you to create a Safety Profile that helps 9-1-1 responders assist you more efficiently.

What is Smart 911

Your Safety Profile includes valuable information about yourself, family members, your home, your pets, and even your vehicles.   The information will automatically display on the 9-1-1 call taker's screen when they receive your 9-1-1 emergency call.  Smart911 is private and secure and YOU control what information is included in your Safety Profile.  These details can save seconds or even minutes during an emergency.
