Did you know you can text NH 911 in an emergency situation?

New Hampshire 911 recently announced they will accept and respond to emergencies via text messaging.
As stated in a press release, voice calls to 911 remain the most effective way to communicate to 911 dispatchers in an emergency. However, there may be situations where texting is the best (or only) option.
When texting 911, be sure to provide the exact location of the emergency so we can find you.
Helpful Hints:
  • Do not text and drive
  • Use concise, simple language
  • Do not use slang, abbreviations, or emojis
  • Do not send images or videos
  • Do not send your 911 emergency in a group text – we won’t receive it
  • A text or data plan is required to text 911
