Texting 999

Did you know about texting the emergency number to 999 instead of calling?


This is an amazing new service especially for people who are in vulnerable situations (young people/domestic abuse victims) where they are not able to call for help as they may fear being heard or retaliation.


In order to use the service you must REGISTER YOUR PHONE FIRST. 

It takes a whole 1 minute!


Send the word 'register' in an SMS message to 999

You will then receive SMS messages about the service

When you have read these SMS messages reply by sending 'yes' in an SMS message to 999

You will receive a SMS message telling you that your mobile phone is registered or if there is a problem with your registration.
