Delaware County Launches 911 Texting System

Delaware County residents may now text for emergency help. 

Officials have launched the 911 texting service, joining several other counties that already have a system in place.  The sheriff's office says it's useful to people who need to remain quiet in violent situations.  But texts are not immediately received, so calling 911 should still be the first option. 

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
