Do you know about the EmergencySMS service?
It is a valuable tool that can be shared with our communities, partners and even families and friends.
It assists anyone who may have communication difficulties with contacting the police or other emergency services.
The service is free and allows you to use text messaging to get in touch with any of the UK 999 services (police, ambulance, fire and rescue or coastguard).
It is available for anyone who finds making a voice call difficult, has communication difficulties, is deaf and includes members of the autistic community.
To use the service you need to pre-register your phone on the website. For further details go to – http://www.emergencysms.org.uk/
