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? 
* No.  
* 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.
