Text-To-911

Post Date:12/26/2017 2:50 PM

Carver County is pleased to announce a new service to 911!  Text-to-911 is LIVE and operational in the State of Minnesota for those who are unable to call and speak to 9-1-1.  This improves 911’s ability to serve the deaf/hard of hearing community and provides another option to contact 911 in situations when it is unsafe to make a phone call.  Calling 911 in an emergency is still the fastest way to access emergency services, but now you are able to text if you can’t call.  For more information, please see the attached Text To 911 Fact Sheet and helpful links.  If you have additional questions, call the Sheriff’s Office non-emergency number (952) 361-1231.
