11-2-17-Independence, Kansas-Text-to-911 service is available in Montgomery County for those individuals who cannot safely make a voice call to 911 in an emergency. This will be a valuable service to the deaf and hard of hearing community. Testing for Text-to-911 has been completed for the Independence 911 Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) and is available with plans from AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, & Verizon Wireless, and other local carriers. Text-to-911 may not be available outside of the Independence 911 PSAP’s service area. The Independence 911 PSAP receives all 911 cell phone calls for Montgomery County so Text-to-911 is available to all of Montgomery County. If a text is made to 911 where that service is not available, a message will be sent back to the phone advising the customer to make a voice call. Some situations when Text-to-911 is appropriate: • Deaf, hard of hearing callers, or individuals with a speech disability • A caller who is unable to speak due to a medical or other condition • Emergency situations that would put the caller in danger if making a voice call • Examples include abduction, domestic violence or active shooter situation When texting to 911, follow these guidelines • Provide your exact address or location • Explain the type of emergency or help that is being requested • Be prepared to answer any questions that the 911 telecommunicator texts back. • Use plain language; do not use abbreviations, symbols, emoticons, or photos. • Messages should be brief and concise Texting 911 can be done by typing “911” in the field for a phone number. No other numbers need to be used. Texting should be done through your wireless phone’s text messaging service and not from third party texting applications. Text-to-911 requires an active telephone service plan with data or it will not work. Remember, the best way to contact 911 is by making a voice call. Please only utilize this service in emergency circumstances where a voice call is not possible or safe.

Great work MGSO! The comments are great...
It's humbling to see such great pride in a community such as ours.
Today, Cherryvale Officers assisted the Montgomery County Sheriff's Department and were dispatched to an injury accident at County Road 6000 and US 169. Thankfully this was a minor injury crash. Cherryvale Fire-Rescue and Montgomery County rural fire did an outstanding job as well. The Cherryvale Police Department would like to encourage all drivers to remain vigilant. This could've been a tragedy. Please make sure you pay attention to your driving! Our prayers are with both families involved.
