911 Texts


CHAMPAIGN- Now texting 911 will be the new option for residents in Champaign.

A valuable resource for the hard of hearing and also vital in certain emergency circumstances when calling is not realistic.

METCAD is the dispatch service in Champaign County and now they will have the ability to handle emergency SMS text messages to 9-1-1 in Champaign County.

Tuesday night on WAND news we will hear from the coordinator of this program on how this will benefit many residents in the area.
