Payette Fire Assists With Senior Project

Payette Fire teamed up with multiple agencies on Sunday, to shoot a senior project video on drunk driving. We hope that the end project really brings awareness to people on the consequences of drunk driving. We were honored to be apart of this!




The program, known as “Text-to-911,” enables people to open a new text message and enter “911” as the recipient and then indicate their exact location and the nature of their emergency in the text message. Lt. Creech says a voice call is still the most reliable way for dispatchers to locate a person who needs help. "Dispatchers can get location information from a call even when the caller cannot tell us. A location transmitted with a text message may be less precise for responders.” Read the entire press release here.
