Smart 911 & Winnetka Alert

January 16, 2019 03:25 PM

Winnetka offers residents and businesses an emergency alert system that allows the Village and other government agencies to communicate information on weather, traffic, or other critical incidents.  Smart911-Winnetka Alert is a free service that individuals and businesses subscribe to for notifications via email, text, or voice message.  

A significant feature of the Smart911 system is the Safety Profile for your household or business.  A Safety Profile provides important information for emergency personnel to help them send the appropriate response team to the correct location armed with valuable facts.  The information in your Safety Profile is secure and confidential, and is only used by emergency first responders.

For smartphone users, a Smart911 app that sends alerts based upon your location is available for download at Smart911 App, or by texting “Smart911” to 67283 for the download link.
