911 emergency phone service out across state
Spokeswoman Kerry Zimmer says the problem began about 1:30 a.m. Thursday at Sheridan, Ore., and Oregon was affected for a time. It has since been restored in Oregon, but service remains out in Washington.
Another spokeswoman, Jan Kampbell, says technicians are working to solve the problem. CenturyLink provides the service statewide because the dispatch centers are all tied together.
In Snohomish County, officials suggest callers who need to reach 911 use a 10-digit number until the problem is corrected.
