Enhanced 9-1-1 amenities have arrived for League City residents through the addition of an Emergency Profile Service provided in partnership with Harris County 9-1-1. The service allows citizens to create a secure profile in advance of an emergency and link critical information to a cell phone and landline.
“Seconds count in an emergency; having access to detailed and accurate information allows our first responders to provide better service to our citizens in a crisis,” said League City Police Department Communications Manager Kim Hera.
Once the Emergency Profile is created it is linked to the landline and wireless phones that are registered and automatically provided to a 9-1-1 call taker at the time of a 9-1-1 call. Residents can add as little or as much information as they want, as well as update their profile as needed. League City citizens can create their profile by visiting www.leaguecity.com/EmergencyProfile. Information provided on the profile may include medical conditions or allergies, residents with special needs, pet information, and home access details.
“We are pleased to offer our jurisdictions and their residents this beneficial service at no additional cost,” said Lavergne Schwender, Executive Director of Greater Harris County 9-1-1. GHC 9-1-1 administers the 9-1-1 infrastructure for 49 cities and two counties. To learn more about the Emergency Profile and other services provided by GHC 9-1-1, go to www.911.org.
