What is Smart911?
Smart911 is a free service that allows residents to create a Safety Profile for their household that includes any information they want 9-1-1 to have in the event of an emergency. Then, when anyone in that household dials 9-1-1 from a phone associated with their Safety Profile, their profile is immediately displayed to the 9-1-1 call taker providing additional information that can be used to facilitate the proper response to the proper location. At a time when seconds count, being able to provide 9-1-1 with all details that could impact response the second an emergency call is placed could be the difference between life and death.

Emergency Notification System (ENS)
Layton’s Emergency Notification System (ENS) is used to advise you of any situation
that threatens harm to life and/or property or is deemed dangerous by officials. This may
include, but is certainly not limited to inclement weather, man-made disasters, crime,
pandemics, hazardous materials incidents and missing persons. Notifications are made
to specific geographic areas affected by the incident, but can be made to the entire
city on rare occasions.
