Sumter County adds Smart 911 service.

Wildwood, FL -

Sumter County announces today that their communications center has completed the integration of
Smart 911 services for Sumter County.

Smart 911 is a service without additional cost that allows citizens to create a safety profile that
includes any information they want first responders to have when responding to their call. In the
event there is a need to dial 9-1-1, the caller's Smart 911 profile will appear on the call taker
computer screen.

The PSAP (Public Safety Answering Point) remains the first point of access to emergency services
and each advancement in technology has improved our ability to respond to the community.

With the addition of Smart 911 in Sumter County today, we reflect on the 50 years of 9-1-1. On
February 16, 1968, Alabama Speaker of the House, Mr. Rankin Fite, made the first 9-1-1 call from
the Haleyville City Hall.

For additional information and to create a safety profile, see www.smart911.com for additional
information.

If you have any questions, please contact Sumter County at (352) 689-4400.
