Columbus has implemented a new Text-to-911 system

While a call is still preferred, in situations when it is not safe to be on the phone a text option is available.  Text-to-911 works on cell phones, tablets and other devices with the capability of sending texts. If you are a Columbus campus advisor, you can share information with your students about this.  For more information about the new Text-to-911 service, go to www.text911.franklincountyohio.gov.
