T-Mobile customers nationwide are having difficulty connecting to 911 services tonight.
The Seattle Police Department would like to remind everyone that you can still reach dispatchers in the city by calling (206) 583-2111 for emergencies.
This number connects directly to Seattle dispatchers, so if you live outside the city limits you will need to know your local 10-digit dispatch phone number.
Please take the time to look this up before you have an emergency because every second counts.
Please do not test the system to see if service has been restored. We will notify everyone when we know it is working properly. Please keep an eye on our Twitter account as well as right here for the latest updates.
