Indiana's "Text to 911" Program

Continuing efforts to improve public safety and modernize Indiana’s 911 services, Treasurer of the State Kelly Mitchell and the Statewide 911 Board are pleased to announce that Hoosiers in all 92 counties can now send a text message to 911.

“Indiana has the largest deployment of ‘Text to 911’ in the United States” said Treasurer Mitchell.

“Since 911 was created, Indiana has been a leader in this industry. Statewide ‘Text to 911’ capabilities are yet another example of our leadership and innovation in this arena.”

‘Text to 911’ services allow people who are deaf, hard of hearing, and speaking impaired to access participating emergency service call centers by sending a text message to 911 in lieu of making a voice call or needing a telephone relay service. “Text to 911” also allows residents in dangerous situations who are unable to risk the noise of a call to send a text for help.

If you would like more information about the ‘Text to 911’ program please contact Barry Ritter, Executive Director of the Statewide 911 Board at (317) 234-2507.

New Website to Find Child Care

The Indiana Family and Social Services Administration (FSSA) recently announced a new, online tool to assist families in finding child care and early education providers.

Child Care Finder in Indiana

ChildCareFinder.IN.gov is one of several online enhancements FSSA is making to help parents and families find services in their area.

The website allows families to search licensed providers by numerous parameters including location, type of provider, hours and licensing status, which will help families across the state meet their child-care needs.

Families can find inspection reports and any validated complaints or enforcement actions for each provider they search. Parents can also see if the provider participates in Paths to Quality, Indiana's voluntary quality rating and improvement system.

With this new tool, parents can be assured they are finding high-quality child care that meets their needs while helping ensure their child's safety.
