Text-to-911 in Minnesota

The Minnesota Department of Public Safety Emergency Communication Networks division announced that Text-to-911 service is now available statewide. Text-to-911 is an alternative option to calling 911 in an emergency. Texting should ONLY be used when individuals are unable to make a voice call. Individuals who are deaf, deafblind, hard of hearing or speech impaired may use Text-to-911 as a first contact option. Remember: "Call if you can, text if you can't."
