LEWISTON, Idaho— As of 9:25 a.m., the issue has been resolved.
The Lewiston Police Department said people using Inland Cellular Service for their phones are unable to hear or be heard by dispatch when they call 911.
Officials said Inland Cellular was aware of the situation and so was the Nez Perce County 911 Coordinator.
Authorities asked that if people have an emergency and can’t hear anything when they call 911, that they stay on the line so dispatchers can try to locate them with GPS.
