Non-emergency phone line in Prosser is down

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash. -- Service for a non-emergency phone number in Prosser is down. The Benton County Emergency Staff says the (509) 786-2112 non-emergency phone number is not working right now. Instead, call the (509) 628-0333 non-emergency phone number. It is a long-distance phone call.

911 calls from Prosser are not affected. If you live in Prosser, you can still call 911 to report a medical emergency, fire or immediate threat to people or property.

Crews don't know how the outage started. It is only affecting non-emergency calls between Prosser and the Southeast Communications Center in Richland. The center only answers calls for the Prosser area. No word on when the outage will be resolved.
