ALERT (from Prince William County Police Department)
The Prince William Public Safety Communications Center is currently unable to receive 911 call.
If you need police or fire & rescue services, call the non-emergency number at 703-792-6500.
The 911 situation is totally unacceptable. It isn’t the first time either. I remember a 4th of July night about 3 years ago when 911 went down.
There has to be a back up plan. This is one of those examples of cheapest isn’t always the best. Think about this situation next time you start whining about paying higher taxes.
The County/City need to drop the provider immediately and go with the most reliable, not the cheapest.
You cannot have a situation where there is no way to call fire, rescue or police. If I were a thug, guess what I would be doing?
It has been this way since shortly after 6 AM. That is 4 hours of dead time for 911.
