What if someone can not hear or talk?
9-1-1 has the capability of answering on the TTY system. Each of our workstations has the ability to handle TTY. If a hearing impaired or speech impaired person does not have a TTY, then dial 9-1-1 for a land line and don’t hang up. The address and phone number you are calling from will be displayed on the 9-1-1 screen and the police will be sent.
