Smart911 is a free service available to all citizens and is 100% private and secure. Safety profiles can be created through the Smart911 website at www.Smart911.com. Smart911 has the added benefit of being a National Safety Database, giving our citizens the ability to have their information travel with them. While they may create their profile in their hometown, if they dial 9-1-1 anywhere in the country where the Smart911 service is active, their profile will be available to 9-1-1 call takers.
Smart911 will allow citizens to create a Safety Profile of vital personal and household data, including household members, photos, medications or medical conditions and even pets, which will be displayed to 9-1-1 call takers immediately when a citizen places an emergency call. This safety profile provides much richer information than is currently available on incoming calls and can contain the specific details that first responders need in order to save lives.

The Mission of the Osage County Emergency Management Agency is to protect the lives and property of all Osage County residents when major disasters threaten public safety in any community. The Osage County Emergency Management Agency responds to two types of disasters - natural and manmade. Natural disasters are major snow and/or ice storms, floods, tornadoes and/or severe weather, as well as the threat of a serious earthquake along Missouri's New Madrid Fault. Manmade disasters, also known as technological emergencies, may include hazardous material incidents, nuclear power plant accidents and other radiological hazards. The Osage County Emergency Management Agency is also responsible for developing a County Emergency Operations Plan which coordinates the actions of Missouri State government departments and agencies in the event of any emergency requiring use of State resources and personnel."
