"TEXT TO 9-1-1" Press Release

Recently, many news stories and articles about the availability of nationwide Text to 9-1-1 were circulated. These articles were based on the FCC deadline for the four largest mobile telephone providers to make Text to 9-1-1 accessible to every 9-1-1 center by May 15, 2014.

Although the mobile telephone carriers have met their deadline, the dispatch center for the Hinsdale Police and Fire Departments is not currently capable of receiving Text to 9-1-1. Residents need to know that a text to 9-1-1 will receive a “bounce back message”, which advises them to call 9-1-1 because text to 9-1-1 is not available within their service area.
