911 System Down in Several Southwest Missouri Communities

Michele Skalicky

The 911 operating system that serves Barry, Christian, Dade, Dallas, Laclede, Stone Counties and Taney Counties is currently down. 

Taney County 911 administrator, Tammy Hagler, told KSMU they are working to identify the problem, which is impacting around 60,000 Missouri residents.  She said they believe the problem is with equipment that's in the Jefferson City area.
