The state of Connecticut has finally implemented a 911 text system! If you’re in a unsafe situation and you can’t make a call, you may now text DIRECTLY to 911 and describe what’s happening. I always wondered why this never became a thing, so I’m happy that it’s finally a reality in the state. What are your thoughts? Let me know @justPEREZplay.
The State of Connecticut has launched a new Text-to-911 capability as part of the state’s new Next Generation 911 Emergency Telecommunications System. Text-to-911 provides residents with the ability to send a text message to 911 from a handheld device in emergency situations when it is either unsafe or they are unable to place a voice call. The system, which is available statewide, is now in effect. For more information on the Text-to-911 system and to see a demo of the capability, visit www.Text911CT.org. #textto911 #textto911ct #text911 #text911ct #911 #callifyoucantextifyoucant #ctstatepolice #connecticutstatepolice #trooper #troopers #police
