Residents of Los Angeles County now have a silent way to reach out for help. If you need law enforcement, the fire department, or medical professionals using your mobile phone, you can send text messages to 9-1-1.

When you text to 9-1-1, your emergency text message will be routed to the local 911 call center, which will coordinate an emergency response to your location.
