Russell County 911 is out of order.
Emergency dispatchers there are asking that residents use an alternate emergency number if they need help. That number is (785)-483-7801.
An outage is causing 911 to malfunction, but Nex-Tech is working to fix the problem. We'll let you know as soon as everything is working again.
Once again, call (785)-483-7801 for any emergencies.
