911 texting available for hearing/speech impaired Innisfil residents

Read Time:37 Second

South Simcoe Police Service can now receive emergency calls via Text with 911 (T9-1-1) from people who are deaf, hard of hearing, or speech impaired (DHHSI).

T9-1-1 enables emergency communication with 911 call takers via text message. To use T9-1-1, members of the DHHSI community must register their cell phones with their wireless carrier in advance. 

Some older model phones may not be compatible. Those who have more than one cell phone will need to register each phone individually.
The service is not intended for use by the general public.

More information is also available through the Canadian Wireless Telecommunication Association at www.cwta.ca.
