Sarnia-Lambton residents with hearing or speech impairments now have an alternative way to communicate during an emergency.
Texting 9-1-1 allows registered cell phone users to alert emergency officials and receive a response via text message.
Participants must register for the T9-1-1 service on the website of their cell phone provider.
The program is provided by Lambton County and Sarnia Police. For more, visit www.textwith911.ca
