911 service down statewide for hours, now mostly restored

County numbers to call listed


The statewide 911 outage has reportedly been mostly corrected.

The problem reportedly occurred in Sheridan, Ore. but affected 911 centers across Washington.

Officials will be looking into the reason no backup systems kicked in.


The State E911 Office has reported a major nearly total 911 outage in the State of Washington occurred just after 1 a.m. on April 10.

The State E911 Office is actively engaged with CenturyLink on this problem. There is no estimated time frame for restoring 911 services at this time.
