Text Messages To 911 In Lancaster County

LANCASTER COUNTY T-Mobile Wireless customers in Lancaster County can now send a short message service (SMS) text message to 911 for emergency help when unable to make a 911 voice call. The service will be available to any T-Mobile customer within the range of a Lancaster County cell tower. Text-to-911 is intended primarily for an individual who is hearing or speech impaired and for a person who is unable to make a voice call, due to a medical emergency, or in the instance of a home invasion, or abduction. Lancaster County Commissioner Scott Martin says ‘the safety of residents and visitors in Lancaster County is our number one concern.”
