Text-To-9-1-1 services available in San Saba County

Central Texas Council of Governments (CTCOG) Regional 9-1-1 Program is pleased to announce the availability of Text-to-9-1-1 service in our entire region, including San Saba County.

Text-to-9-1-1 is a service that allows citizens to send a text message directly to 9-1-1 for assistance in the event they are unable to make a voice call.

Simply send a text as you would normally. In the recipient field, enter 911, then compose the message and push send.

Once your text is sent, the 9-1-1 system will send an automated message asking the individual texting for the address of the emergency.

This starts the text session between 9-1-1 and the individual needing emergency help.

It is important to remember that Text-to-9-1-1 services should only be used in an emergency situation, when someone is unable to speak.
