In a few years you might be able to text 911 when you have an emergency. According to Washington County 911 Supervisor, Cara Sorrells, the initiative was prompted by situations where calling 911 can be dangerous, like during a school shooting. She says that while some places in Iowa have already begun using this technology, it might be two to three years until it reaches Washington County.
