You can now text 911

You can now text 911 if you need emergency help in the OKC area. It’s always better to call on the phone if you are able — so call if you can, text if you can’t.

Open a new text message, type 911 in the recipient field, type the location of your emergency and hit send. Someone will reply with instructions or questions.

This service should be particularly helpful for someone with hearing or speech impairments, or for someone who needs emergency services but can’t safely make a voice call.

Texting to 911 for an emergency in OKC will activate a response from the Oklahoma City Police Department, Oklahoma City Fire Department or EMSA OKLAHOMA. This service is in partnership with the Association of Central Oklahoma Governments, ensuring texts for emergencies will activate a response from whichever local jurisdiction is appropriate.

Helping Neighbors

After last nights storms we all had some sort of limb, tree, or debris to pick up & clean out. As I was out I was witness to a few of you checking on neighbors & coming together to pick up the mess. We have such a great neighborhood & wonderful neighbors! I hope all have their power back on this evening.

Don’t forget to mark your calendars for Neighbors Night Out on Tuesday September 10! Block party on 79th & it’s going to be so much fun!
