GLEN ELLYN – The village of Glen Ellyn encourages residents and visitors to register their phone numbers for Smart911, a service that provides information about them to emergency responders.

If a 911 call is made from a registered phone number, personal information provided through Smart911 will be shared directly with the dispatcher, who then gives it to the responder.

Information may include medical conditions and alerts, children's photographs, home and work addresses or other rescue-related information. The information is kept confidential, and only emergency operators and responders can access it if the phone number makes an emergency call.

To register or learn more about Smart911, visit www.smart911.com.
