Nashville AT&T outage might impact some 911 calls, emergency communications center says

Metro Nashville Department of Emergency Communications reported on Monday that AT&T wireless customers in the area are having outages, which could prohibit access to 911 services.

AT&T users who may be affected can still contact 911 during an emergency in Nashville through a landline or with Wi-Fi calling solution, according to the emergency communications department's social media post.

Those who don’t have an emergency should not test 911, the department office said.

Non-emergency numbers HubNashville (311) or 615-862-8600 are options for emergency calls if 911 isn’t accessible, according to the emergency communications department.

The emergency communications department is in contact with AT&T, the social media post states.
