ATT outage affects 911; Sheriff offers alternatives

The Plumas County Sheriff’s Office has notified Plumas County residents that parts of the north state are experiencing a system-wide AT&T outage. Residents may be able to make local calls, but 911 calls from cell and landlines are not working.
The Sheriff’s Office cell phone in dispatch is working in Quincy at: 530-283-7444.
Also it seems for now, texts to 911 are still working, which means you can text 911 with an emergency and talk directly to a dispatcher.
The Sheriff’s Office will provide updates as available.
