‘Text-to-911’ introduced in Coryell County

Citizens of the Coryell County area now have another way to contact 9-1-1 without having to actually speak on the phone. On Feb. 10, the Central Texas Council of Governments (CTCOG) announced that Text-to-9-1-1 service will now be available in the entire Central Texas region.

Text to-9-1-1 is a service that allows citizens to send a text message directly to 9-1-1 operators for assistance in events where the caller is unable to make a voice call.

To use the system, simply send a text as you would normally. In the recipient field enter 911, compose the message and push send. Once your text is sent, the 911 operator will start the session with you.
