TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Some officials charged with upgrading Kansas’ 911 system say a nearly three-hour outage across the southern part of the state on Sunday revealed the potential for future major disruptions to emergency operations.
During the outage, which began about 1:35 p.m., multiple counties weren’t able to log into the state’s 911 system.
Allen County’s 911 system was among those affected. Calls were rerouted to another department and the county was never without service, a representative said this morning.
