Enhanced 911 Program Office
The ability to contact 9-1-1 using text is only available on a limited basis in a few markets. 9-1-1 centers in Washington are currently working to make the necessary upgrades in order to accept text-to-9-1-1, but the technology is not yet in place.
The first phase will be limited to text only. The goal is to modernize the equipment which will allow us to eventually be able to accept pictures and videos as well.
If you are experiencing an emergency, please place a voice call to 9-1-1. When text-to-9-1-1 is available, King County will announce it through a media campaign, and you can also find out here as well as our Facebook page.
The E-911 Program Office administers the regional emergency 9-1-1 telephone system in King County. In partnership with the twelve call centers in King County, our office helps provide quick and professional 9-1-1 service to the entire county, including all cities and unincorporated areas.
