Emergency phone line goes out, returns 15 minutes later

The emergency phone line to the Pierce College Sheriff’s Office briefly went down today around 6:20 p.m., according to Cadet Melissa Hidalgo.

Text message and email notifications were sent out around 6:30 p.m. to alert students and faculty that the emergency line was “not working,” and to dial 911 in the event of an emergency.

“We don’t know why they went down,” Hidalgo said. “We just knew that there was no way to reach the emergency number.”

The phone lines went down for about 10 to 15 minutes, according to Hidalgo. Info-tech was notified of the problem and fixed it around 6:40 p.m., Hidalgo said.

The emergency phone line is now fully operational, and emergency calls can once again be received by the Sheriff’s Office.
