Text With 9-1-1 Service!

The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) is now pleased to offer... Text with 9-1-1 (T 9-1-1) Service to persons who are deaf, hard of hearing or speech impaired.

 

What Is T 9-1-1?

T 9-1-1 is a new Service that enables individuals who are deaf, hard of hearing or speech impaired (DHHSI) to communicate with 9-1-1 Operators via text message (SMS) during an emergency.

 

How Does T 9-1-1 Work?

1. Register your cell phone for T 9-1-1 with your wireless carrier. 

A list of carriers is available at textwith911.ca
 

2. In an emergency, dial 9-1-1 as if making a voice call. 

Do not send a text message directly. 

Communicate with the 9-1-1 Operator via text message and provide all relevant information, including your name, location and the emergency assistance required.

 

Will T 9-1-1 Work Everywhere In Ontario?

No. T 9-1-1 Service is only offered by some Emergency Services in Ontario, but the list is expected to grow.
