911 reminder for cell phone users

Lots of folks overestimate 911 dispatchers’ access to their cell phone location.

(We wrote about this topic, and why 911 texting isn’t available locally yet, about a year ago here.)

SNOPAC, one of two primary emergency dispatch centers in Snohomish County, recently shared this PSA with us.

Similar messages will be aired via radio spots as well as part of a statewide education effort. For more information, visit www.emd.wa.gov.
