New Orange County Text 911 Service

Big picture

Citizens and visitors in Orange County can now send a text message to 911 during an emergency or life-threatening situation. When seconds matter, a voice call to 911 is still the best and fastest way for a 911 call taker to retrieve and deliver life-saving information in the event of an emergency. However, there are certain circumstances where a text to 911 may be a better option. These include:

  •  You are hearing impaired
  •  You are speech impaired
  •  Making a voice call places you in a dangerous situation
  •  You have tried to call 911 but cannot get phone reception

If you choose to send a text message to 911, please remember the following:

  •  Always provide your exact location and the nature of your emergency
  •  Remember to silence your phone if you are in a dangerous situation
  •  Avoid using slang, social media jargon, and abbreviations
  •  Do not send photos, emojis, or videos
  •  Do not send a group text
