Share post:

Sioux Falls, SD – Sioux Falls is set to hold a press conference at 10 AM today to discuss the details of last night’s extensive 911 outage. This outage not only impacted Sioux Falls and Rapid City but was part of a broader disruption across multiple states including Texas, Nebraska, and Nevada. The City of Sioux Falls will provide insights into the events of the night and the subsequent restoration of services.

Residents were temporarily unable to reach emergency services via 911, prompting the provision of alternative contact methods. The Del Rio Police Department in Texas attributed their local outage to issues with a major cellular carrier, while Chase County, Nebraska, advised the use of landlines after stating that the 911 system was down for all cellular carriers except T-Mobile.

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department also reported outages but managed to restore services later in the night, assuring that all calls received during the outage were returned. As communities seek answers, today’s briefing is expected to shed light on the cause of the outages and the measures taken to resolve the issue. The widespread nature of the incident has sparked a discussion on the vulnerability of emergency systems and the importance of resilient communication networks.
