Text-to-911 service is now available for the Southeast Region.
The Southeast Region 911 announces the availability of Text-to-911 service for the region that includes Lincoln. Region spokesmen say Text-to-911 is the next step in accessing emergency services as technology advances. Officials caution that Text-to-911 is not meant to take the place of calling 911 using standard voice calls. They point out that Text-to-911 has more limited location acquisition..and information can be obtained more quickly with a voice conversation than via text.
The advice to Nebraskans is “Call if you can,text if you can’t.”
