text-911-featThe Owen Sound Police Service is pleased to announce the launch of TEXT with 9-1-1 (T9-1-1), a new service that provides the capability for the deaf, deafened, hard of hearing or speech impaired (DHHSI) community in Canada to communicate with emergency 9-1-1 services. This service is now available in Grey and Bruce Counties, Wingham, Aylmer, Port Hope and Dryden area.
TEXT with 9-1-1 service allows members of the DHHSI community to call 9-1-1 during an emergency and converse with a 9-1-1 operator using text messaging rather than by voice. Specialized software will allow the 9-1-1 communications staff to recognize the call as coming from a registered phone, associated with the DHHSI community, and text back and forth with the caller to address the emergency. There will be no need for a caller to be able to speak or hear.
