Residents of all Dallas counties will soon have the option to text 911 for emergency services in case making a phone call is unavailable. It’s a service neighboring cities are already utilizing, and Dallas is incredibly close to being finished installing.
The initiative has already saved the life of Candie Price, who in the middle of a domestic incident in 2016 felt that trying to make a phone call would have been life-threatening.
Dallas plans to launch a new 911 system in early December, with the texting service hoping to launch 60 to 90 days after.
Texting 911 is already available in THESE counties!
