TEXT TO 911

The program, known as “Text-to-911,” enables people to open a new text message and enter “911” as the recipient and then indicate their exact location and the nature of their emergency in the text message. Lt. Creech says a voice call is still the most reliable way for dispatchers to locate a person who needs help. "Dispatchers can get location information from a call even when the caller cannot tell us. A location transmitted with a text message may be less precise for responders.” Read the entire press release here.
