Get the message! When an emergency occurs, the County will instantly notify you with updates, instructions where to go, what to do, who to contact and other important information.
Text-to-9-1-1 is intended for three emergency scenarios:
- An individual who is deaf, hard-of-hearing or has a speech disability;
- Someone who is in a situation where it is not safe to place a voice call to 9-1-1;
- A medical emergency that renders the person incapable of speech.
ONLY text 9-1-1 in an emergency.
