Denver 911 provides Denver residents with special needs and disabilities numerous ways to communicate with 911, as well as a registry that helps ensure police provide appropriate response services during an emergency.
In addition to TDD and TTY services, deaf and hard of hearing and speech impaired residents can now text or email Denver 911 to report emergency and non-emergency situations occurring in Denver and around the metro area.

Be sure to text or email the following information:
The TDD is an electronic device for text communication with the deaf. The device uses a series of tones which allow users to communicate via a keyboard and telephone interface at 911. The deaf and hard of hearing community is encouraged to maintain a TDD machine to access 911 when a text pager or email is unavailable.
Denver's 911 call takers are trained on the use of the TDD and check all 911 hang-ups and “silent” phone calls or “open lines” using both voice and TDD commands to verify if a member of the deaf or hard of hearing community is on the line.
You may now submit information about yourself, or other members of your household, who have special needs or disabilities in order to help 911 respond appropriately during an emergency. Your information will remain confidential and will give officers advance warning about your circumstance prior to responding.
This form should not be used to report emergencies. If you have a current emergency, please call 911 immediately.
