Please take a moment to check and update your information so that when emergencies happen, you can call and feel a little safer knowing that help is on the way.

Forward your cellular calls to Convo
Sometimes we get calls to our text number. However, during times of calls from your doctor or from your family members in a time of crisis, it can be messy trying to get the information you need when the communication access isn’t easy to use. You can change that by routing your calls from your text number to your Convo number. That way you can control communication access and use ASL during these situations.

Share information with your Convo interpreters
During non-911 calls, it would help make conversations go smoother if you could share key information such as medical situations with your interpreter so they can be aware of what’s happening. This way, you’ll get what you need during important calls and feel reassured knowing that interpreters are on the same page as you are.
