Minnesotans can now text to 911 with an emergency


December 6, 2017

Minnesotans have been dialing 911 for emergency help since 1968. On Tuesday, the state rolled out a statewide program allowing Minnesotans to text 911 for help as well.

State officials still encourage calling 911 when possible, but texting is a first option for the deaf, deaf-blind, and hard of hearing. And it’s an alternative option for those who might put themselves in jeopardy by calling.
