I was driving in the park this morning, listening to our local radio station The X, when a sweet southern voice introduced herself as a 911 operator here in town. She was talking about emergencyprofile.org, a web service you can sign up for, and enter your important information.

When you call 911 from your cell phone, the operator will see the information you provided, on their screen. Such as:

• Name.

• Address.

• Age.

• Contact info (phone/email).

• Emergency contacts (phone/email).

• Medical conditions.

• Anything else you would like a 911 operator to know.

The sign up procedure sucks on a phone, so if you do it, use a laptop or computer.
