Can messages be sent to TTY phones?

Teletypewriter (TTY) services are not supported by the Emergency Alert system. This is because the database from which telephone numbers are drawn does not capture information about which telephone numbers are linked to teletypewriters.

People should be adequately prepared in the event of an emergency, continue to use a range of information sources and stay aware of local conditions. You should not wait to receive a warning message before you act.
