Road litter poses a serious hazard here in Washington too. On average, there are 350 accidents involving road debris on state highways each year.  Source: The Washington State Deparment of Transportation.
  2. IT IS THE LAW:  No vehicle shall be driven or moved on any public highway unless such vehicle is ...

9-1-1 Wireless Phone Calls in the Wilderness

Posted on : Feb. 1, 2019 Updated on : Feb. 1, 2019 in: Tips, Website .

Who Will I Reach?

  1. You need to know that wireless phone service may not be available in the wilderness.
  2. If service is available, your 9-1-1 call for help will be picked up by the nearest cellular tower in the most direct line of sight to your location. It could be picked up at a county 9-1-1 center, by State Patrol dispatch, or even by the Canadian authorities. Since these call answering centers are all located outside the boundaries of the calling area, they would have no way of knowing from where you are calling unless you tell them.
  3. Be prepared ...

Personal Property Inventory

Posted on : Oct. 27, 2018 Updated on : Oct. 27, 2018 in: Community, Website .

Every year the Whatcom County Sheriff’s Office investigates hundreds of Burglaries and Thefts. Only a small percentage of the stolen property is recovered and returned to the owner. One of the main reasons property isn’t returned is the lack of documentation. Property is recovered, but there is no way to match it with the owner. The unclaimed property goes into evidence, and eventually to auction.

When an item is stolen the information goes into a police report. Generally the more specific details about the item, the more likely it will be recovered and returned to the rightful owner ...
