Communication Outage Takes Down Plumas 9-1-1 System

A communication outage has brought down the sheriff’s office 9-1-1 system in Plumas County.

A system-wide AT&T outage will allow only local calls to go through but all 9-1-1 calls from cellphones and landlines are not working. If you have Verizon or T-Mobile phone line 9-1-1 calls are working. The outage is only affecting AT&T. The Sheriff’s Office reports that cell phones in dispatch are working in Quincy, you will be able to report emergencies and speak directly to a dispatcher by calling 530-283-7444.

AT&T is working to bring communications back on line.
