The Booneville Senior Center was the site of a Smart911 sign-up event by the Logan County Office of Emergency Management Thursday.

The office held the event to assist anyone who has limited internet access or simply needs help in completing the web-based Smart 911 sign-up.

The system requires a cell phone number a participant wishes to use as their primary number and requests and email address. Other information that can be entered into Smart 911 is medication allergies, emergency contacts, medical conditions they would like for first responders to know, and vehicle information.

OEM director Tobi Miller said the event, the third at the Booneville Senior Center, drew nine new Smart911 users and three others came in to make changes to their accounts. The first event had drawn 25 new registrants.

Smart911 is available online at to anyone who would like to sign up for this free service. Sign-up events are intended to assist the people who have limited internet access or limited knowledge of computers.
