A technical issue with a router in the Upper Peninsula is believed to be to blame for a Tuesday evening outage that affected 9-1-1 centers across much of Michigan, including Hillsdale County.
A large portion of the state had little to no access and residents were left unable to dial 9-1-1.
Hillsdale County 9-1-1 and Emergency Management Director Thomas Whitaker tells WCSR News, local services were intermittently interrupted for about 90 minutes, before they were fully restored.
Whitaker said the vendor is working to investigate and resolve the issue.
A network provider in the Upper Peninsula is expected to
review the incident and issue a report, in an effort to avoid future outages.
