At about 8:00 PM on Wednesday, many Josephine County cellular phone customers received an automated message indicating a widespread, intermittent 911 outage.
There is, in fact, disruption of regular 911 services to cellular phones; however, it does not affect all phone providers.
Officials say there is no reason for citizens to call 911, only to test their connectivity to 911 services. The 911 dispatch center is receiving numerous calls from citizens trying their ability to reach 911.
Authorities say do not call 911 unless you have an emergency.
Additional information will be released by officials when services have been restored to regular operation.
