The Village of Morton Grove is now offering enhanced 911 contact with a new service called “Smart 911”. This is a voluntary and free service offered to all residents of the Village. By signing up for Smart 911, citizens are able to proactively provide information to facilitate a fast and accurate response. With Smart 911, a resident is able to create their own Safety Profile. Additionally, the Village will use the Smart 911 registration to notify the subscribers of important Village emergency notifications. The resident chooses what information to include and what details are important to share with first responders. It is important to note that the resulting Safety Profile is private, secure, and only available to 9-1-1 when an emergency call is placed. Interested residents can learn more and/or sign up at www.smart911.com. The Smart911 app is available on the Apple App Store or Google Play. Please contact the Morton Grove Police Department (847) 470-5200 if you have any questions.
