Hello, Did you know that if you have difficulties calling 999 you can register to make contact via text? This is perfect for those with difficulty making phone calls.

1. Register your mobile

Text the word 'register' to 999.

You'll need to register again if you change your phone number.

2. Read the message

You’ll get an automatic text reply. Please read it all. 

3. Reply to the message

Read the message and then reply by texting ‘yes’.

4. Get a 'success' text

You'll then get a text telling you that your mobile is now registered - or if there's been a problem…

5. Check it

Text 'register' to 999 and you'll get a message telling you if it's registered or not. Don't text anything else - there's no need to make a test call.  You're now set up.

Can't register?

If you try to register but don't get the 'success' text, check with your mobile provider to make sure they support the emergencySMS service.
