Hearing or speech impaired callers

(703) 877-3715 alternate - (571) 350-1939

Fairfax County 9-1-1 is equipped with a text telephone (TTY) device to allow people who are hearing or speech impaired to communicate through their own TTY device. If you use a TTY/TDD, press the TTY keys several times after the call is answered; this may reduce the time necessary to respond to the call. Give the call taker time to connect their TTY. Tell the call taker what is needed and provide your name, phone number and address of your location. If it is safe, stay on the telephone to answer the call taker's questions. If you do not have TTY/TDD, call 9-1-1 and don’t hang up. This will leave the line open. In most cases your phone’s address will be displayed on the call taker's screen and help will be sent.
