Emergency SMS service
If you have difficulties with speech or hearing, you can register for the emergency SMS service, which will send a text message to the relevant UK emergency (999) service.
Simply by sending an SMS message to 999 you can call for help and the emergency services will be able to reply to you.
You will need to register your mobile phone before using the emergency SMS service. Visit the emergencySMS website for more details. Click here to download the emergency SMS leaflet.
