In Danger and Can't Call 9-1-1? Try Texting

If you are in danger and can’t make a voice call to 9-1-1, one lifesaving option might be to text instead. If you live in Maricopa County, simply type 911 into the “to” field of your text message. Be prepared to give your address, as responders won’t be able to see your location as they would through a voice call. That’s one reason we say, “Call if you can. Text if you cant.” This technology will soon be available in other counties in Arizona as well. You are NOT alone!
