An Orange County Emergency, 911 in Limbo

Posted by on Tue, Aug 11, 2009 at 3:59 PM

Update: 4:14 p.m. - All systems are go. 911 is back up and operating. Call that number for all of your emergency needs.

Someone call 911. Oh, wait. You can't. It's down in Orange County. If you have an emergency, hang up and dial 919-732-5658.

 

County information officer Doug David Hunt said specialists are trying to determine the cause of the outage and are working to correct it. He wasn't sure when 911 would be back up.

 

He did say that the problem appears to be limited to Embarq customers and that a CodeRED alert was sent to all affected parties.

 

Check back for more details as they develop.
