Fulton County Emergency Services is pleased to announce the successful launch of Text to 9-1-1 service on July 1, 2018. Fulton County’s Text to 9-1-1 uses the latest state-of-the-art technology allowing hearing and speech-impaired residents, as well as those in potentially dangerous situations, to reach out for help.
Text to 9-1-1 requires a cell phone that has the capability to send text messages. Location services must be enabled and text messages should be brief, easily understood, and should not contain abbreviations, emoji’s, or slang. Currently, the texting service is only available in English; other language solutions are in development and will be implemented as soon as they become available. The system cannot receive photos or videos at this time.
