Virginia Beach 9-1-1 Service Restored

Wednesday, September 11, 2013

As of 5:10 pm, Virginia Beach 9-1-1 lines are fully operational; VB9-1-1 call takers are able to retrieve the telephone number and location information associated with incoming telephone calls.  The 911 service outage was the result of a line cut due to construction in the area of the 9-1-1 Center.


Virginia Beach 9-1-1 would like to remind the public to never hesitate to dial 9-1-1 if you believe you have an emergency or have witnessed someone else having an emergency; remain on the line and follow any instructions given by the 9-1-1 call taker.  Non-emergencies should be reported to 385-5000.
