RENO COUNTY, Kan. (KSNW) – After several hours of emergency phone lines being down in Kansas’ southern counties, all are reporting operational again.
According to the Kansas 911 Coordinating Council, around 55 counties reported issues with their emergency lines. The council said the problem was an internal issue with the system.
“Initial diagnosis indicates that it’s a software conflict where the software is fighting itself internally,” said Michelle Abbott, a representative for the Kansas 911 Coordinating Council.
Several teams worked to fix the problem at hand. People can now call 911 for emergencies.
