In Orange County, including on airport property, you can now send a text message to 911 during an EMERGENCY or life-threatening situation. A voice call to 911 is the best and fastest way for the 911 call taker to retrieve and deliver life-saving information. But if you can’t call, please text.

If you must text, please do the following:

·         Keep message brief

·         Text your location, the nature of the emergency, and your name

·         Avoid slang and abbreviations

·         Do not sent photos or videos

Texting is not available in all areas. Check availability in other counties.
