Text to 911 Now Available in Yolo County

Text to 911 Now Available in Yolo County
Call If You Can, Text if You Can’t

Yolo County residents needing emergency services are now able to text their situation to emergency dispatchers.
Text-to-911 is intended primarily for use in specific emergency scenarios:

  • for an individual who is speech, or hearing, impaired;
  • for a person who is unable to call 911 due to a medical emergency that renders them unable to speak;
  • in the event of a crime such as a home invasion where speaking might give away the location of a person hiding, or in an abduction situation; or,
  • in domestic violence situations where it’s not safe to make a voice call.

When determining whether to make voice call or send a text keep the following in mind:

  • Callers should text 911 only when calling is not an option
  • Texting is not always instantaneous, which means it may take slightly longer to dispatch emergency services in a text-to-911 situation
  • Providing location information and nature of the emergency in the first text message is imperative, since
  • Yolo County 911 may not receive location information and will not be able to speak with the person sending the text. Text abbreviations or slang should never be used to that the intent of the message can be as clear as possible.
  • Those who use the system must have a cell phone that is activated and capable of sending text messages in order to reach 911 via text. There is no charge to the customer for sending a text to 911.

How to text 911 in an emergency:

  • Enter the numbers “911” in the “To” field;
  • The first text message to 911 should be brief and contain the location of the emergency and the type of help needed;
  • Push the “Send” button.
  • Be prepared to answer questions and follow instructions from the 911 call taker.
  • Text in simple words – do not use abbreviations or emojis.
  • Do not send pictures or attachments
  • Keep text messages brief and concise.

We encourage anyone who has any further questions to please contact our dispatch center. We would be happy to provide further education on these services including a test scenario from your phone at a scheduled time.

Friday Update on November 9 2018


A short recap of some key items from the City Council Meeting and how Winters is helping on the Camp Fire which has destroyed the Town of Paradise.

  • The City Council approved an increase in the City’s Development Impact Fees which are charged to new development to offset the impacts toward new future facilities and as a “buy in” to facilities which are already constructed but the new development benefits from. The last impact fee increases were in 2003 and 2010. The main measure of comparable fees is medium density residential units, which will see an increase of approximately 382 per new residential unit over the fees from 2010 (which were drastically lowered because of the 2008 recession). The increases are main generated by the addition of two projects to the program which include a new Community Center and a 22 acre active sports park for new baseball/softball, soccer and other amenities. The fees will go into effect on January 1, 2019.
  • The Council also included two amendments to the Waste Management contract, including an allowance for fines for contamination (trash) in the organics container, overages (too much trash set out beyond the capacity of the bins) and about a $1 increase because of adjustments at the County Landfill to cover tipping fees due to some upcoming capital projects and new environmental regulations.
  • Parking Fees– the Council approved a resolution to increase parking fines to $30 from $15 which essentially covers our administrative costs. Our parking fines are about half of those in neighboring jurisdictions.
  • The Circulation Master Plan was approved which provides for the roadway and traffic improvements all the way to build-out of the City. The plan essentially includes some widening of Grant Ave from the 505 to E. Main Street, future traffic signals at 505 and E. Main Street and future roundabouts at Morgan and Dutton Streets. Improvements are predicated on the total buildout of the City which is now estimated at 2036 and beyond. The overall goal of the program is to address both safety and the reduction of congestion through town.

Overall a pretty comprehensive meeting on really important items.

A reminder about the Winters Fire “All you can peel and eat” Shrimp Feed on Saturday, November 10 at the Fire Station with Cocktails starting at 5 and Dinner at 6. Proceeds go to the Toys for Kids Program.

Finally, our efforts to help the Town of Paradise.

Winters has sent both Police and Fire Personnel to what can only be described as a devastated area. As of Friday, they estimate 15,000 structures have been completely destroyed including the Town Hall, the commercial district, a hotel and a hospital. Reports from the City personnel are that the area is significantly impacted, mostly homes have been totally burned and the residents and businesses need our prayers. We were on the Santa Rosa Fire and they describe it in that context.

OES 333 is on the fire line with no relief, so they were asked to work another 24 today. They are a part of OES 4816A team and currently enroute to Magalia. Staff has said everyone is holding up, a little tired but they are on a mission and working hard is expected. Let’s just hope they get some rest tomorrow.  The 4 that went on the strike team include Captain Matt Schechla, Driver Operator Victor Diaz, FF Junior Mederos, FF Alex Mercer.

The Sacramento Valley City Manager’s are mounting a relief effort to help the Town of Paradise with staff assistance for both short term relief and long term recovery in their EOC, field operations and administratively. The process of recovery is a difficult and significant maze which can be difficult to negotiate with State and Federal agencies. Its times like these that we need to combine talents and know how to help a community in need. The Town Manager of Paradise along with her staff are a small and mighty group, but many have been equally affected with their homes destroyed and families impacted.

For those wishing to help or donate toward aid for Camp Fire victims, the following has been forwarded to us https://www.nvcf.org/fund/camp-fire-evacuation-relief-fund/

Keep the communities in this area in your prayers.

  • A Dia de los Muertos Celebration will be held at the Winters Cemetery on Friday November 2, 2018 starting at 4:00. This is sponsored by the Hispanic Advisory Committee and will be followed by a screening of the movie “Coco” at the Winters Middle School.
  • The 3rd Annual Salmon Festival– 2018 will be on Saturday, November 3 from 11:00 to 4:00 p.m. at Rotary Park. Displays, food and creek tours with a chance of seeing some salmon coming up the creek. Fun for the entire family!

A couple items of interest:

  • A signing ceremony for the Yolo Conservancy Habitat Conservation Program was held in West Sacramento. This was a big day for both Yolo and the environment. The ceremony was the culmination of over 25 years of effort and collaboration to streamline the mitigation process of government while helping in the preservation and sustainability of hawks, owls, snakes and invertibrates. Kudos to the many who have participated in an important program.
  • Permit issuance on the freeway hotel is looking imminent. Staff went through our checklists and are about to notify the developer to come in a pick up the permit.
  • On Monday, November 5 at the City of Davis, Staff and Mayor Pro Tem Wade Cowan will be attending a critical meeting on Animal Services for Yolo County. This will be the first of two meetings in November where the formation of a new governance structure will be discussed to improve overall animal services for all of Yolo County.
  • Follow the adventures of Woody and Rebecca Fridae as they travel across Europe in their blog. This week they are in Romania, but you can catch up on France, Belgium, Germany and soon to be in Greece. Go to https://fridae.blog/ .

Finally, file this under  “damned if you do damned don’t” in regards to the City of Winters App. Since going to the City Council for approval, social media and email has brought lots of comments which shows that there are lots of opinions on lots of things! The goal of the App is to put in place an avenue available to folks to dynamically report issues and gain information from the City. Apps have become a common avenue for these types of functions in the modern era and something many cities are turning to as one of the tools to achieve a higher level of responsiveness.

A key reason Staff looked into the App was to quell the issues and answer folks on social media who don’t report issues to the City but can broadcast issues over the various social media platforms instead of calling City Hall to report the problem. An easy link via Facebook or our website for active folks to quickly access the app, report the need and facilitate a response was seen as a means to an end! Uh, not so easy. Part of the budget was to print signs to include in key City locations for easy download and access to the App, including for visitors in the Downtown and future hotels.

An interesting phenomenon are the comments and emails from tech folks who all seem to essentially attack the tech option. The comments on “assessment of citizen engagement needs” from the tech folks essentially recommends steering off the tech option and “exploring” other alternatives than the City App OR waiting for something new to come along. Some experts suggest we assign people to monitor the numerous social media platforms, which is simply not going to happen.

We are working on an implementation plan for the App. If in the end, we can establish another tool for our residents and visitors to communicate issues to us, we will call it a success. We currently have phone, email, snail mail and our City website. One more options should not hurt.

So, damned if we do, damned if we don’t!

Have a nice weekend.

11/06/18 City Council Meeting

Friday Update on October 26 2018


Next week is a fifth week of the month, so no City Council meeting. A couple items being worked on by City Staff:

  • This weeks Planning Commission had a couple items including an update of the City’s Circulation Master Plan and revisions to the Municipal Code in regards to food trucks. Both were recommended to the City Council with the Circulation Master Plan being reviewed at the November 6 meeting and the Food Truck on December 4.
  • The Food Truck Ordinance is a pretty dynamic issue. The State just enacted SB 946 which essentially allows “sidewalk vending” to occur almost anywhere within a City. In the case of food trucks, the City has limited them to only commercially zoned areas and on private property but the vending carts can go almost anywhere on sidewalks and the public right of way within the parameters that they are licensed.  My sense is that the future of vending will be pretty interesting since the establishment of the vending carts can occur in residential areas and they can sell practically anything except alcohol and tobacco. Stay tuned.
  • Staff is actively working on the striping of Downtown for parking. We are currently evaluating locations for additional diagonal spaces (versus parallel) along Abbey Street as well as location on East Main Street. Once we have a plan we need to grind some markings off the pavement and begin a process of repainting which will include practically every space in the Downtown area.
  • Parking fines and a process for adjudication will be on the November 6 City Council Agenda. We expect to have everything in place for an active parking enforcement program for just after the first of the year.
  • Folks with motor homes and fifth wheels need to move them off the street and back to storage! The Police Department gave everyone a late summer reprieve as people finished off those late summer trips. It is now time for people to get their recreational vehicles and trailers back into storage or get a ticket. We did an entire summer of warnings but the reality is tickets will be next on the list.
  • The Rotary Club of Winters was at both Waggoner and Shirley Rominger Schools on Thursday reading poems and giving away books to kids. Check out these Rotarians in action by clicking HERE.
  • Tonight is the Downtown Harvest Festival beginning at 5:30. Great food, wine and music to entertain and start the weekend off right!
  • The 7-0 WHS Warriors are in Durham for a League game. Go Warriors!

Have a nice weekend.

Friday Update on October 19 2018


A really short update but some good stuff.

  • Staff met with representatives for the Downtown Hotel. They are shooting for an opening around the start of summer. They are developing their website and marketing materials which should be available before the first of the year. Frankly, it was the most positive meeting we have had on the project in the past few months.
  • As inspections are commencing, the hotel is starting to become very real. Some members of the City team have been onto the roof top bar which has some amazing views of the Creek, hills and the amazing farmland which surrounds us. Many of us can hardly wait for the project to open.
  • A good job by Winters Fire this week for the fire in Putah Creek. The good news is that it cleared out a lot of debris which will benefit the creek during the winter. The bad news was the loss of an excavator and an entire day of smoke enveloping the City.
  • A busy City Council Meeting. The City Council approved moving forward with an App for the City, gave direction regarding scheduling sessions for Strategic Planning and had a very positive discussion on some general plan stuff. Overall, a good meeting.
  • Planning Commission Meeting on Tuesday will include the City’s Circulation Element, Food Trucks and an update to the City’s Emergency Plan Multi Hazard Mitigation Plan.
  • A nice presentation on recommendations for Senior Services. To get a copy of the Winters Senior Resources Guide click HERE.
  • For people interested in getting an update on the City’s General Plan, go to HERE.
  • The WintersJUSD will be having a visioning workshop at Shirley Rominger Intermediate School next Thursday,  October 25, 2018 beginning at 6:00.

Have a nice weekend.
