Verizon 911 outage restored in Snohomish County

Everett Fire officials say 911 service for Verizon customers in Snohomish County appears to be restored after an outage.

Earlier Friday, those attempting to call are receiving “call failed” notifications due to “a statewide system failure,” Everett Fire said.

“If you are trying to contact 9-1-1 in Snohomish County, please call one of their 10-digit numbers: Non-emergency 425-407-3999, or 425-407-3970 or 425-407-3971,” Everett Fire officials stressed.

But they said service was restored just before 8 a.m.

“The system appears to be back up and functional,” Everett Fire officials said.

There is no word what caused the outage.
