What if I use a TTY Machine?

If you use a Text Telephone (TDD, TTY) machine for the deaf, make sure you know the correct way to dial 911 on your machine. After dialing 911, tap several letter keys on the keyboard to alert the dispatcher, and then wait several moments. Repeat this procedure until the dispatcher answers. The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department Communications Center has TTY capabilities.
