Is Text-to-911 or an equivalent Emergency SMS system operational in your area?

Yes. It's been live in my county for almost exactly the last 2 years.

Excellent question. It caused me to google my city and apparently we've had it for several years now. I'm sharing with family and friends as I suspect they don't know either.

No, not yet. It's a brilliant idea though. It would be great for my area.

I don't think you have it yet anyway, and may not get it for a while:

Thank you I tried to look it up last night and it looked a little confusing. I doubt if we have it. It would sure be a good thing to have. If I remember right they have an emergency call system that goes out if there's a tidal wave or something coming.

I just googled text to 911 for Illinois and apparently it is available. Didn't know...

Yes, it's been enacted in my state for over a year.
