Early this morning, 9-1-1 centers across the State of Washington began experiencing issues with their 9-1-1 telephone equipment. This issue impacted jurisidictions to varying degrees. Here in Seattle, we switched to a part of the 9-1-1 backup system to receive 9-1-1 calls from the public.
As of 7:00 am, the system is back up and both Seattle Police and Seattle Fire have resumed normal 9-1-1 operations.
If anyone is still having difficulty reaching Seattle Police via 9-1-1, they may call (206) 583-2111.
