PULASKI (WSLS 10) - Pulaski County unveiled a new program that will save first responders time during emergencies and could help save lives.

It is called Smart911. Using this system, people can create their own safety profile, which includes things like medical history, family member contact information, entry ways into your home and even pet information.

Smart911 is running in conjunction with the county's new alert system.

Pulaski County is the third locality in Virginia to implement the program. There are about 1,500 places that have it across the country.
