Text with 9-1-1 Service
The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) is now pleased to offer Text with 9-1-1 (T9-1-1) service to persons who are deaf, hard of hearing or speech impaired.
What is T9-1-1?
T9-1-1 is a new service that enables individuals who are deaf, hard of hearing or speech impaired (DHHSI) to communicate with 9-1-1 operators via text message (SMS) during an emergency.
How does T9-1-1 work?
* Register your cell phone for T9-1-1 with your wireless carrier. A list of carriers is available at http://textwith911.ca/wirelessservice-providers
* In an emergency, dial 9-1-1 as if making a voice call. Do not send a text message directly.
* Communicate with the 9-1-1 operator via text message and provide all relevant information, including your name, location and the emergency assistance required.
Will T9-1-1 work everywhere in Ontario?
* T9-1-1 service is only offered by some emergency services in Ontario, but the list is expected to grow. Visit http://textwith911.ca/service-availability to find out if T9-1-1 is available in your area.
