Problems With Benton County 911 System

RICHLAND, Wash —All emergency 9-1-1 calls are once again being properly directed into dispatchers at Benton County ’s Southeast Communication Center (SE- COMM ) in Richland. 

Earlier in the day, some callers were not able to get through to the center using the normal 9-1-1 lines.  

Technicians from Verizon Telephone worked to isolate the problem, and as of 6 p.m., it appears that all 9-1-1 calls are ringing into the center.
