Re: DPS Non-Life-Threatening Emergency Contact Number

Would "Houston Cellular" be considered Cingular Wireless?

Re: DPS Non-Life-Threatening Emergency Contact Number

Yeah I was wondering what would be some "qualifications" to dial this number vs 911. I like the whole idea though, I've never heard about this number. Thanks for the information!

You guys are welcome...not sure what situations will qualify....but I guess anything that is Non-Life-Threatening will be OK.

So far the other number that I know is the Texas Roadside Assistance 1-800-525-5555 No need to memorize this number, is on the back of your Drivers License.
