Portions of Arizona, Nevada experience 911 service outages
PHOENIX (AP) — Authorities said 911 service was down throughout parts of northern and southern Arizona and Nevada on Monday night.
It was unclear why the emergency system was down and authorities didn’t immediately have an expected time of repair.
For some Arizona counties and cities, service went down and then resumed as quickly as 15 minutes later while others were still experiencing outages.
In southern Arizona, the Pima and Cochise County Sheriff’s Departments, Tucson police, Oro Valley police, Northwest Fire District and the city of Tucson all reported 911 outages.
Agencies across Yavapai County and Flagstaff were reporting outages in northern Arizona.
There were no reported 911 outages in the Phoenix metro area.
In Nevada, 911 was down in the Washoe County, Reno and Sparks areas and technicians were working to resolve the problem.
The Reno Gazette-Journal reported that text-to-911 remained operational.
Similar outages were reported in Minnesota, Utah and Delaware.
