All Texas county voters are encouraged to
VOTE YES on Tuesday April 8th, 2014.
Question #1 on the ballot proposes a 3/8 of one percent sales tax on retail sales for the purpose of providing central dispatching, fire protection, emergency ambulance service, including emergency telephone services and other emergency services.
With the loss of so many landline phones in the county, the funding of our 911 Enhanced emergency phone system is critically low. Additionally, no money is received from any cell phone companies to help fund 911.
This sales tax is vital for 911 to stay operational in its present state.
This tax will replace the 15% surtax on landline phones currently in place to fund 911 operations.
Please share and encourage others to get out and vote on this important issue.
VOTE YES APRIL 8TH
The Committee: Supporters for Saving 911
Treasurer: Melissa Middleton PO Box 416, Houston MO 65483

Wri-Tex 911 on Saturday honored two children for their efforts in saving their dad, Gregory Williams, following a chainsaw accident in March near Slabtown. Williams, who lives in the Slabtown area, was cutting firewood when he cut his leg, severing a main artery. His two children, Taylor, 8, and Tracey, 13, quickly went into action to save him. Taylor took off his shirt and made a tourniquet, while the daughter drove him out of the woods to an Evening Shade grocery store as their father was unconscious. Taylor called 911 and advised them of the situation. From Left to Right: Jonelle Ellis the dispatcher who took the call, Taylor, Donna Robertson Wri-Tex E911 Executive Director and Tracey Williams. http://www.writex911.webs.com/

PressRelease—For Immediate Release-- March 2009
The Missouri Chapter of the National Emergency Number Association (MONENA) recently presented 10 y.o. Breanna Spence from Summersville, MO with the 2009 HERO award. Breanna was honored by the state’s 9-1-1 organization at the banquet and awards ceremony that is held annually by the association.
The MONENA annual conference and trade show was held at the Tan-Tara Resort at Lake of the Ozarks. The award was presented by Michael Kindle, President of the association and director of MaconCounty Enhanced 9-1-1 and Donna Robertson, 9-1-1 Director of Wri-Tex County who nominated Breanna for the award. The HERO award for Missouri is sponsored by Centurytel.
Last May, Breanna was at home in the early morning hours when she woke up to a house full of smoke. She was able to make her way across the house through thick smoke, to wake up her dad. She then traveled back through the smoke to find her sister, and help her exit the house, while her dad was getting her mother and little brother out of the house. While helping her sister, Breanna grabbed a phone on the way out and called 9-1-1. Although sleepy, she was very calm, and described to the 9-1-1 dispatcher what was happening as her dad was fighting the fire.
For knowing what to do in an emergency, and placing the 9-1-1 call that saved her families home, Breanna is truly a HERO.
