The Hernando County Sheriff’s Office has been notified that Verizon Wireless customers MAY experience issues when dialing 9-1-1.
The call may fail and/or the 9-1-1 operator may hear the caller; however, the caller may not be able to hear the operator. If the call does ring into the HCSO Emergency Communications Center (but seems to have failed), we will call back.
TEXT TO 9-1-1 IS STILL AVAILABLE.
Verizon Wireless users should contact the temporary administrative line we have established until the issue is rectified.
