Text-to-911 has been available statewide in Minnesota since December 5, 2017. It is coordinated by the Minnesota Department of Public Safety Emergency Communication Networks Division (DPS-ECN) as a vital alternative to calling 911 in an emergency. 

Individuals who are deaf, deafblind, hard of hearing or those with a speech disability may use Text-to-911 as a first contact option. It is one of several options you have depending on your unique communication preferences and devices. 

Please take this survey and let us know if you are prepared to use Text-to-911 in an emergency in Minnesota if you need it. If you have already tried the Text-to-911 service in our state, we are interested in learning about your experience.

Yes, I want to take the Text-to-911 survey.

And always remember this motto, "Call if you can, text if you can't."
