Winnetka residents now have a new way to get additional information to public safety personnel in case of an emergency through a newly introduced emergency alert system.

On Jan. 16, the Village announced that residents could now sign up through a service called Smart 911, which is used throughout the nation.

It is all part of an effort to expedite care, according to Winnetka Police Chief Marc Hornstein.
