Everything seems to be fine now but no one is quite sure exactly what went wrong with the Hillsborough County 911 system yesterday It appeared to be an issue affecting cell phones, not landlines. Callers were getting a fast busy signal. Tampa PD advises you to use a landline if you do need 911 if this ever happens again, or call the Tampa Police non-emergency number at 813-231-6130. For fire or medical emergencies call 813-232-6805. There is more on the story here with additional phone numbers.
