Amid a nationwide push to bring emergency services into the modern day, Maryland is rolling out a system that allows people experiencing an emergency to text 911. The District launched the service last summer and a number of jurisdictions in Virginia have also enabled the option, including Arlington, Fairfax, and Loudoun counties. It is a move toward accessibility, especially for people with speech or hearing disabilities, but some wonder why 911 services are just catching up to the 21st century.
