Deaf people can register to text the emergency services

Add to My Shortlist

Deaf people can text the emergency services on 999, but only if phones are registered for the service in advance.

Don’t wait until you need to call, it will be too late.

How to register

Write an SMS text which just says “register” and send it to 999.

They will reply with a message telling you more about the service.

When you’ve read their message reply with “yes”.

Shortly afterwards you will get another reply message. This one will say you are now registered, or tell you there is a problem and how to solve it.
