I think it's a great idea! While I still think calling would be a faster and more reliable way of reporting an emergency it's good to have another option. There are some situations where phoning the police would not be an option and a text would be a better, more discreet alternative.
Convenient or Crazy? Texting 911 for Emergencies

I don't tend to think about whether I should be using my phone or not, it seems to come as naturally as whether you would pull out a book and start reading, I normally find it easy enough to just use a bit of common sense. I'd never sit around a table with 1 or 2 friends with my face buried in my blackberry, however replying to a few messages of having a flick through Twitter while at the pub with a group of mates is not really a problem. Unfortunately less and less people seem to have the common sense to think that staring at their phone while out at dinner with friends may come across as rude..
