Responding To 911 Outages In Oregon & Washington

OPB | April 10, 2014 12:06 p.m. | Updated: April 10, 2014 2:14 p.m.

Service has been restored after a 911 outage Thursday morning that affected both Washington and Oregon. It’s still unclear exactly what caused the widespread outages, which occurred between 1:00am and 6:30am. CenturyLink, the company that provides 911 service for both states, told OPB that the outages in Oregon and Washington do not appear to be related. County emergency management departments provided alternate 10-digit phone numbers for people to call during the outages. 

Were you affected by the 911 outages? What questions do you have about the incident?
