What to do during 911 Service Disruption

Recently southeastern MN experienced a 911 service disruption.   Red River Regional Dispatch Center was not affected by this service disruption but we believe it is important for callers to know what to do if you cannot reach 911.

If  you are unable to reach 911 at the  Red River Regional Dispatch Center, the dispatch center can be reached at the non-emergency number of 701 451 -7660.   Text to 911 may also be working even if voice calls are not going through. If you are using a cell phone, it might be a problem with your carrier;  in those instances trying a cell phone with another carrier or using a landline.

The MN Department of Public Safety shared a blog post about what to do if you cannot get through to 911.
