OCSO dispatch rolls out text-to-911

 The Owyhee County Sheriff's Office announced in a Thursday afternoon press release that citizens will be able to send a text message to 911 dispatchers beginning Monday.
  The service will be available after 8 a.m., Monday.
  The feature isn't a replacement for placing voice calls to 911 and should only be used when someone is unable to call 911. Examples cited in the OCSO press release include the hearing- or voice-impaired or if someone is in a medical emergency and is incapable of speech, or in situations — such as a home invasion or domestic violence incident — where speaking out loud would endanger the caller.
  Dispatchers cannot automatically locate a person using text-to-911, so reporting parties must include location information.
  The service is available only on select cellphone providers: AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon.
  Read The Owyhee Avalanche on March 27 for more information.
