Please remember that Mt. St. Helens is located in a remote area of southwestern Washington. There are no cell phone towers within the Monument or the Gifford Pinchot National Forest. Even at lower altitudes, reception may or may not work depending on the time of day, your location on the volcano, variable weather conditions and the cell network you use.

Do not consider a cell phone a substitute for adequate preparedness.

• If you have an emergency and need assistance: Try a text. Because the data is routed differently, often a text will get through when a voice call will not.

• Currently, 9-1-1 agencies are unable to receive information via text. However, if you can text to another party that you need assistance, they can call 9-1-1 for you.

• If you must text someone to call 9-1-1, be aware that calls are routed to the nearest PSAP (Public Safety Answering Point). If you do not know anyone in the area where you are traveling, there may be a delay in getting the call to the right dispatch center.

• Keep in mind during a major disaster it is possible that even with cell phone reception, cell services may be unavailable
