911 Service Restored After Nationwide Outage
September 28, 2020 at 9:06 pm
MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Emergency phone lines across the United States are back online after an apparent nationwide outage Monday evening.
WCCO first became aware of the outage at about 6:45 p.m. after being alerted by Minneapolis police. By about 7:15 p.m., service was reported being back online by several Minnesota law enforcement agencies.
At about 8:30 p.m., Minneapolis police announced that service had been restored across the country.
Law enforcement agencies were urging citizens to stop calling 911 lines to test functionality, as those calls were impeding actual emergencies.
