Cell phone calls to 911 in Union Co. malfunctioning

UNION COUNTY, NC (WBTV) -

Union County officials are working to fix the 911 service center after they discovered that the line for cell phones is malfunctioning.

Anyone using a cell phone who needs to report an emergency should call 704-289-1591. Those calls go directly to the county's 911 center and the callers receive the same service as if they dialed 911.

Callers using a LAN line should still call 911.

Once the cause of the malfunction is identified and repaired, officials say they will alert the public.
