Make Yourself Heard

Alert message sent 24/05/2019 10:57:00

Information sent on behalf of Cumbria Police

Do you need urgent Police attendance but can't speak to due to fear of danger? Are you hard of hearing or do you struggle to communicate using speech?

The 999 55 system allows you to get urgent help from the Police without having to explain any circumstances.

Below is a step by step guide of how the system works.

1. DIAL 999
2. LISTEN to the questions from the 999 operator
3. RESPOND by coughing or tapping the handset if you can
4. If prompted, PRESS 55 - This lets the 999 call operator know it's a genuine emergency and you'll be put through to the Police
