Alpena City Fire Department community risk reduction officer Andy Marceau and 911 director Burt Francisco presented lifesaving tips, so that seniors can be ready, should an emergency arise. Both provided a few useful tools for seniors to protect themselves with. Two of those were carbon monoxide and smoke detectors that seniors can get help with installation by contacting the senior center.The other was a smart 911 app, where you can preload information like photographs, allergies, and other important notes about where you live and who lives there. This helps first responders have a better understanding when responding to a situation. They can look at the information, so they can anticipate an emergency instead of going in with little or no details.“When you call 911, it’s a very chaotic situation, and there is a lot of emotion, and they may not recall everything that they need to tell a dispatcher or emergency responder,” said Francisco. “During a time, a non-emergency time, they can go in and enter their information, which will expedite and make the 911 call more efficient to process with dispatcher.”Smart 911 is free and available in the app form or via website for all Michiganders. It can be extremely helpful in nonverbal communications as well. The technology is four years old and was introduced two years ago. It has seen a large increase in enrollment over the past year. You can fill in your information by visiting the website www.smart911.com.AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThis Tags: Alpena City Fire Department, Alpena County 911, Alpena Senior Citizens Center, Carbon Monoxide Detectors, Fire Alarms, First Responders, MICHIGAN, Seniors, Smart 911, Smoke DetectorsContinue ReadingPrevious Woman saves her dog before flames takeover carNext Laugh for a good cause in Oscoda this weekendlast_img read more
