Letter: Smart911 is a smart idea

To the Editors:

I am writing to voice my support for the implementation of Smart911 in Wilton. As a resident of Wilton, I feel this will be of great benefit to not only myself and my family, but also for my friends and neighbors in the community.

The opportunity to prepare for an emergency and provide information to 9-1-1 on my family members is an advantage that could one day save one of our lives. I would be extremely confident that if and when we needed to dial 9-1-1, the response teams would be able to respond to our emergency faster and with better preparation.

I urge the town of Wilton to support the plan to implement Smart911 (which has already been implemented in New Canaan), and I hope that others in Connecticut realize the value of this service to all citizens, and will do the same. I have already created my safety profile in Smart911 and eagerly await the time when I am sure that my information will be available to 9-1-1 dispatchers if and when I need to place an emergency call.

Thank you.
