A 911 outage hit AT&T customers around the United States

AT & T customers are no longer able to respond to emergency services this morning due to a 911 outage. Officials from various countries said.

Several local law enforcement agencies and fire departments said they could not get emergency services by calling 911 via social media this morning. Several officials, including Texas, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Washington, reported the problem.

"I have a 911 problem on my AT & T phone." Indiana's Emergency Services Twitter account said in the first respondent's tweets. The officer instructed the caller to call the emergency service with a direct telephone call in the event of a power outage.

Customers using telecommunications companies other than AT & T were not affected. The 911 outages are not unprecedented, but this morning we hit customers throughout the United States.

The company has since fixed this problem. "Some wireless customers could not connect to 911 earlier this morning," a AT & T spokesman said in a statement. "This has been resolved and we apologize to those affected."
