Super student-athlete Olivia Matlock, a senior at Willapa Valley HS, signed a National Letter of Intent to study education and play softball for St. Martin's University in Lacey next fall. Matlock, who excels in the classroom and on the athletic field at pitcher, in the batter's box, and defensively at first base for the Pe Ell-Willapa Valley Titans, talked with the Herald about her decision to sign with the Saints.
Every child is taught to dial 911 in case of an emergency, but what happens if the county needs to get a hold of you during a natural disaster? This is where the Pacific County Hyper-Reach Reverse 911 System comes into play.
The hyper-reach system was developed and implemented as a way to make contact with people in large groups during an emergency like a tornado, or earthquake. Weather, potential evacuation, and take shelter emergency notification also use this method of communications. The system uses email, phone, text for the notifications.
