Call 9-1-1 in Carroll County – No Texting Service Yet
Westminster, MD

In light of Governor Larry Hogan’s announcement regarding approval of implementation of TEXT to 9-1-1 to Maryland 9-1-1 Centers, the Carroll County Department of Public Safety cautions residents that texting to 9-1-1 is not currently an available option in Carroll County. All citizens are reminded to call 9-1-1 in the event of any emergency.

Although the State of Maryland and Carroll County are working diligently to bring the text 9-1-1 service to all areas, currently Frederick County is the only county in Maryland able to receive TEXT to 9-1-1 messages.

There is no time-line for when the service will become active but any updates will be communicated to the public through the county website
