Yellowhead 911 now accepts
emergency text messages

Yellowhead County wants to remind residents of
the Text with 911 program (T911) which allows
registered users to text 911 during emergencies.
Yellowhead Regional Emergency Communication
Centre (YRECC) incorporates a T911 feature,
which allows persons who are deaf, deafened, hard-
of-hearing or speech impaired (DHHSI) to use their
mobile phones for emergency text communication.
The service is meant for DHHSI persons, though
it is available to all family and friends of DHHSI
persons, who are also encouraged to register for
T911 to keep emergency services accessible. This
service will not work without prior registration with
your carrier.
Before using this service, you must register for
T911 through your wireless carrier and ensure that
your device is compatible with the service. Users of
T911 still must dial 9-1-1 to reach an operator;
however, after dialing through, their mobile device
will then prompt messages via text. Keep in mind
that the service is still limited by the range of your The construction at the Day Care Society of Edson is 75% complete. Seen standing outside is Cook
