Bridgeport CERT/MRC Mission Statement:
Providing residents and first responders of Bridgeport a quality resource for community engagement, safety education, hazard mitigation, emergency response assistance, and other volunteer efforts.
Smart911 allows you to proactively provide details on your family and home that 9-1-1 may need in order to send help in the event of an emergency. It is private and secure, and funded by local municipalities and 9-1-1 centers so that it is free to you. Smart911 is endorsed by citizens, community groups and public safety officials. While not yet deployed everywhere across the U.S., its availability is growing daily. Even if it is not yet in your area, it will work anywhere you travel.
