The Lewis County 911 Communications Public Education Officers attend events and generate media content to further the message of the proper use of 911 and several other topics.

As part of our goal to provide public education, we participated in the 2019 Safety City Program. This program partners with other Lewis County Emergency Services Agencies to provide education in 5 focus areas. The focus areas are 911 emergencies, street safety, school bus safety, boating safety and railroad safety. The 911 program’s focus is to educate students preschool-3rd grade about emergency services. Students were taught what an emergency is, how to call 911, when to call 911 and what to say. Our 2019 Safety City event reached over 850 students from 14 Lewis County schools. This was an increase of over 200 students from 2018.
Safety City 2020
We have sure enjoyed talking to many of your elementary age students this week about 911 and other ways to keep them safe at Safety City. Be sure to quiz them on what they learned. Safety City covered pedestrian safety, railroad safety, school bus safety, boating safety and 911. Please be sure to practice their address with them. Shout out to one of our awesome citizens for making this awesome video! Thank you to all of our partner agencies for teaming up and creating such a memorable experience for the students.Posted by Lewis County 911 Communications on Friday, January 31, 2020
Mossyrock High School Mock-Distracted Driving
In 2019, we also participated in a mock-distracted driving presentation in partnership with Mossyrock High School leadership students. This presentation reached approximately 250 students from Mossyrock & White Pass High Schools. The primary focus of this event was to teach high school students the dangers of driving distracted.
The Student Leaders of Mossyrock High School did an amazing job on their week-long distracted driving project. It was very impactful and we are thankful to have been a part of it! Shout out to the many support agencies who made it all come together: Lewis County Sheriff's Office, Washington State Patrol, Morton Police Department, Lewis County Fire Districts 03 & 08, LifeFlight, Lewis County Chaplaincy, and Lewis County Coroners Office.

Our community outreach efforts continued at the Southwest Washington Fair. At our information booth, we engaged with approximately 2,300 citizens of all ages. We provided activities focused on teaching citizens about 911 emergencies, knowing their location, and how to call 911. Staff from the 911 Communications Center were on hand to answer general questions throughout the duration of the fair.
