Calling 911 is still the fastest way to reach 911, however when you can’t there is now a text option. The option should be used if you are deaf, hard of hearing, non verbal or have any difficulty speaking. The text 911 option should also be used if you’re in a situation where it’s not safe to make a phone call.

How it works:

Enter 911 in to the “TO” field

Give your location and describe what your emergency is

Follow text instructions

This feature is also available in Menifee. Thank you MPD for always looking out for our community.
