Can I text 911?

Yes. Simply make 911 the recipient of the text and we will receive the message. Phone is our preferred method of communication as it is generally easier to collect information that way, but sometimes it may not be safe to call. Example: Someone in a domestic situation wants help but does not want the other party to know they are contacting 911.
