Residents in at least three states were cut off from placing an emergency 911 call on Wednesday evening after states and towns reported that they were experiencing 911 call outages.

Local law enforcement used social media Wednesday evening to inform residents that emergency 911-calls were not working in South Dakota, Nevada and Texas.

South Dakota:

The entire statewide emergency calling system in South Dakota experienced an outage Wednesday evening, the Rapid City Police Department said.

“911 SERVICES DOWN STATEWIDE: South Dakota State Radio has advised us that 911 services are currently down statewide,” the department announced on X.

Cities as large as Las Vegas, Nevada also experienced widespread outages.

“Dial 911 on a mobile device, and we will be able to see your number and will call you back right away,” the Las Vegas Police Department (LVMPD) said. “911 calls from landlines are NOT working at the moment. There is no estimate for restoration.”

Texas: 

Multiple cities in Texas also had outages, including Del Rio and Kilgore.

The Del Rio Police Department said the outage was an issue with the “carrier” and the city’s systems.

“We are aware of an outage with a major cellular carrier affecting the ability to reach 911,” the department announced. “This issue is with the carrier and not the City of Del Rio systems.”
