Non-Emergency Numbers Down During Phone Upgrade In FDL County

While the phone system for the Fond du Lac County 911 Center is being upgraded the non-emergency phones will be out of service. That upgrade begins today. County Communication and Emergency Management Director Bobbi Hicken says the non-emergency numbers for the Fond du Lac Sheriff’s Office, Fond du Lac Police, Fire and Rescue, North Fond du Lac Police, Ambulance and Fire, and Waupun Police and Fire will be affected.  The outage will not affect the Ripon Police, Ambulance and Fire phone lines.  Phone numbers affected include 929-3390, 929-3224, 906-5555, and 324-7911. She says 9-1-1 lines will remain operational, but should be called only if the matter is urgent. She says, “I don’t want people to be afraid to call 9-1-1 during this time. It is the way that you are going to need to communicate with us so please definitely for anything urgent.”
