911 System Fails in Montgomery County; Restored Early Monday

The 911 system in Montgomery County is functional again after it failed for unclear reasons.

County fire department spokesman Pete Piringer tells local media that the 911 system failed late Sunday night, but was restored by about 1:40 a.m. Monday.

Piringer says callers might still get a busy signal if they try to call 911. Should that happen, he says callers should report emergencies directly to local police stations and firehouses.

In the event the 911 is down, Piringer says callers should contact 311 or the nearest police station or firehouse directly.
