Local Police Urge Texans To Save Non-Emergency Numbers In Case Of 911 Service Failure

Houston Police

This past week, AT&T customers in crisis situations were in for a rude surprise when dialing 9-1-1 didn’t work. That’s right. The service went down.

“You may have heard that AT&T customers were unable to dial 911 for a period last night,” the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office posted on Facebook. “If that happened to you, would you know what number to call to reach your local law enforcement agency? Save our number in your phone now: 281-341-4665.”

One thing is for certain, if you’re in a car accident or some thug is breaking into your house at 2AM, the last thing you need to be doing is riffling through Google for non-emergency emergency numbers. So, here they are. Save these to your phone, and be sure to list the contact name as something easy to find when you’re flustered, such as “9-1-1 Non-Emergency.” Saving the contact name as a number should also make the contact show up first in your contacts list for fast and easy access.
