Call 911 if you can, Text if you Can’t
It’s always preferred that you call 911, but in Iowa if you can’t call, then text!
Currently, six mobile phone service providers have taken the necessary steps to allow you to text 911 on your mobile phone in Iowa: AT&T, i-Wireless, Sprint, T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular, and Verizon. As the equipment in each 911 call center is adjusted to enable the receipt of texts, customers of these carriers can use the feature within a matter of days.
