How to Text 911

Red River Regional Dispatch Center recommends that you call 9-1-1 if you can.  However, if you cannot call, there is another way to get help.  Text to 9-1-1 has been available at Red River Regional Dispatch Center for several years.  To send a text to 9-1-1, put the number 911 in the “To” field on your phone and simply put your message into the message field and send the message.   Red River Regional Dispatch Center will process your call for service the same way that voice calls are processed.
