In case of emergency, TTY users should call directly the TTY-equipped center or emergency services center in their community.
The 9-1-1 operators have TTY machines and are trained to respond appropriately to TTY users.
7-1-1 is NOT a substitute for TTY users requiring emergency services.
TTY users who cannot obtain emergency service
via 911 may call 7-1-1 and inform the relay operator
there is an emergency situation.
Please Note: Calling through the relay service may take longer than calling 911 directly.
