Effective immediately, satellite communications devices that have the capability for two-way texting may now communicate directly with the Park County Sheriff’s 911 Communications Center by sending a text message to

This dedicated email address will sound an alarm notifying on duty communications personnel that an emergency message has been received. Dispatchers can then communicate directly with the device where ever it is located. They can ask questions regarding the emergency and update you as to the emergency response being coordinated through the Park County Search and Rescue as they mobilize the resources necessary for the situation.
Commercial devices such as the most recent upgrade to SPOT® or the Garmin inReach® device currently have the capability to press one button for “SOS” or emergency assistance. This will send an alert to the device’s third party emergency monitoring center which will then relay the request for assistance to the closest 911 center.

However, these devices also have the capability for two-way texting. And by using the sheriff’s email address, you can connect directly to your emergency responders without going through the “middle man” communications monitoring center. This enhances any and all response to your emergency situation by allowing our first responders to ask questions, clarifying the situation, the location and any injuries.

Sheriff Scott Steward commented that in emergency situations, speed and clarity are the key to a successful outcome. “The texting capability should never be used in place of the ‘SOS’ button on your device. But by contacting our dispatch center directly via text message after pressing the ‘SOS’, you can enhance our response. We can know who is involved, the nature of the emergency, and the precise location, allowing us to get there as quickly as possible with the proper resources to resolve the situation.”

If you wish to use this service, simply add our email address, to the contacts list on your device. There are no charges over your normal subscription rates. Be sure your device settings include location information, owners name, GPS coordinates and a way to respond.



Lt. Joe Torczon and Deputy Andy Varian visited the third grade classes at Livingston Elementary School this morning to discuss bicycle safety with the students. Topics included proper use of hand signals, where to ride safely, letting your parents know where you’re going and when you’ll be back, the buddy system, etc. Our thanks to third grade teachers Ms. Milli Moore, Mr. Chad Smith and Ms. Hilary Allen for the invitation to speak to the kids.
