Minnesota Text-to-911 Turns One

Text-to-911 Logo

A group of friends took their pontoon on Lower Spunk Lake for the final cruise of the season. But the motor gave out, and they were stranded. The sun was setting, and it was getting chilly. They needed help, but they couldn’t just call 911, because they were all deaf.

Fortunately, they remembered that Text-to-911 is available throughout Minnesota. DNR Conservation Officers were dispatched to the lake, where they towed the pontoon to shore and brought all four people to safety.

We’re celebrating Text-to-911’s first birthday with success stories like this. Check out our latest blog to read more.
