Do you or one of your family members has a permanent medical condition you’d like to enter into the 9-1-1 database or do you have hazardous materials you’d like to enter into the 9-1-1 database. New Hampshire is fortunate to have several ‘enhancements’ within the 9-1-1 system that other 9-1-1 centers around the country do not.
This special database is reserved for permanent medical conditions and hazardous materials on site. It is driven by the customer’s phone number. Once information is entered into our database, each time a 9-1-1 call is received from the specified phone number, a supplemental screen will come up on the computers at the 911 Call Center showing the information you have supplied and they will be able to pass this important information along to the responders.
It is the responsibility of the person completing this form to notify the Bureau of Emergency communications of any information changes, address changes or telephone number changes. Click here to fill out the form.
Text-to-9-1-1 allows residents in dangerous situations who are unable to risk the noise of a call to send a text for help. This will help save lives and must be used responsibly.Texting should only be used when a voice call is not possible, as voice calls provide an advantage by allowing the 9-1-1 operator to more quickly assess the type of emergency and the location of the emergency.
How to text 9-1-1:
Enter the numbers ‘911’ in the ‘To’ field,
In the message field, type your exact location and a BRIEF description of the help you need – use simple words, do not use abbreviations or shorthand,
Push the ‘Send’ button, and
Be prepared to answer the 9-1-1 call taker’s questions.
A text or data plan is required to place a text to 9-1-1. Currently, Text to 9-1-1 is offered via Sprint, AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile.

If a text message does not go through, the sender will receive the following message: “there is no text service to 9-1-1 available at this time.”
