Text to 911 is a now available to all mobile users (including visitors from out of the area) in Placer County. 

It allows someone to use their activated cell phone to contact the appropriate 911 center via text message instead of calling 911.

You should only use text to 911 if

  • you are in a situation where it is not safe to place a voice call to 911 
  • you are experiencing a medical emergency where you are unable to speak, or
  • you are deaf, hard of hearing, or have a speech disability. 

Calling 911 is still a faster and more efficient way of relaying an emergency to the Public Safety Dispatchers.

water professionals week

Celebrate Water Professionals this week

Water is the lifeblood of California and without safe and reliable water, no community and no sector of the economy – from high tech to manufacturing to agriculture – can thrive or expand.

Thanks to technological advances by highly skilled and trained water professionals and the dedication of thousands of industry professionals in the state, California drinking water and treated wastewater meets some of the most stringent water quality standards in the nation. 

In California -- and here in Roseville, too -- our water and wastewater professionals work 24/7 to plan for the future, maintain and upgrade their systems and improve the safety and resiliency of local water supplies for their communities.

See how some of our water pros ensure healthy and safe water resources in Roseville.
