Bri­anna Fields, deputy di­rec­tor of the Ben­ton County Of­fice of Emer­gency Com­mu­ni­ca­tions, said that CenCom has text to 911 ca­pa­bil­i­ties, which could be use­ful for hear­ing im­paired in­di­vid­u­als or some­one in a sit­u­a­tion where they can­not make a call.

To use it, she said, one sim­ply needs to text to 911. In­clud­ing a lo­ca­tion with that text, she said, is es­sen­tial.

“Ev­ery­one now has ac­cess to us,” she said.
