Service interruptions for 911 line

LIHUE — County officials were made aware Monday morning of intermittent service interruptions for phone and wireless customers on Kauai, which may affect the public’s ability to call 911.

If you are having difficulty calling 911, officials are advising the public to call Police Dispatch at 241-1711. Text to 911 is another alternate option.

Please do not attempt to call or text 911, unless you have an emergency.
