Ask the Washington State Patrol anything

This should be interesting. Washington State Patrol Chief John Batiste will take to Twitter today to answer questions from the public from 2:30 to 4 p.m. So if you've had a question you've always wanted to ask, now is your chance. You probably shouldn't ask him to fix your speeding ticket, though. Questions about active investigations are also off limits.

If you want to participate, log onto Twitter and ask your question using the #askWSP hashtag. Chief Batiste will reply on Twitter or use the WSP's Facebook page for answers that require more than 140 characters.  

Spokane Valley Fire Dept. is tweeting

I mentioned last week that the Spokane Valley Fire Department has joined the Twitter world, but I thought it might be helpful to mention what kinds of calls will be tweeted and which will not. It's set up so that calls are automatically tweeted with a brief description and the general location.

Calls like structure fires, vehicle fires, brush fires, extrications, water rescues, serious auto accidents and those involving hazardous materials will be tweeted. The standard medical calls and minor car accidents will not be mentioned. The tweets will also include the occasional safety message and notifications of new press releases.

You can find the department at @SpokaneValleyFD. And you can always check their web site to get details of calls for the last 96 hours as well as see press releases and pictures.

Check the right side of the page for a new link to click to follow me on Twitter. Two of my fellow bloggers convinced me to give it a try. It will also make it easier for people to get my breaking news about things going on that may impact traffic while on the go. Most people don’t surf the web and read blogs while driving, but you can get a tweet. And if you are surfing and driving, put down the phone.
