Social Media 911 Prank

There’s a new prank making the rounds on social media which is tying up 9-1-1 operators. The prank tells people to ask Siri to call 112 (which is the equivalent to 911 in Europe) to see what happens. Siri is smart, and dials 9-1-1 which is tying up operators making it harder for others to report real emergencies. Please don’t fall for this prank.

If you need help in the U.S. or Canada, dial 9-1-1. Otherwise don’t fall for this gag.

* Know When to Call 911: During weather events, 911 centers can become inundated with phone calls, including those from people seeking information such as how to report power outages.

* To report a life-threatening situation or a hazard to public safety, such as a downed power line or a tree across the road, 911 is the number to call.

* If you need to report a power outage, call the PUD directly at (425) 783-1001 or (877) 783-1001, 24 hours a day.

* Please remember, 911 is not for directory assistance. If you need a phone number, please use other methods or call directory assistance.

Gone But Not Forgotten

This memorial wall was started after the law enforcement community suffered some terrible losses beginning in October 2009.

One of the agencies that lost several officers gave SNOCOM a patch as a thank you for supporting them in their time of need. Dispatchers Cheri Barker and Lindsay Payton decided to take on the project of “Gone but Not Forgotten” so the patch could be displayed. Letters were sent to police and fire agencies all over Washington state requesting patches to commemorate fallen officers and firefighters. As SNOCOM was established in 1971, it was decided that would be the beginning year for our memorial.

SNOCOM now houses the “Gone but Not Forgotten” memorial wall in which all agencies  that have lost a police officer or firefighter in the line of duty since 1971 will be remembered  forever. This was our way for agencies, families, as well as our community to know that we sincerely  appreciate what our police officers and firefighters do. It is an honor to be able to display a patch for each agency. Each and every fallen hero will be missed and remembered, forever!
