Butte County’s 9-1-1 system has been restored after it went offline around 5:45 a.m. Tuesday.

Service was restored around 12:15 p.m., more than six hours after it went down.

In a written statement issued Tuesday afternoon Butte County Sheriff's Office Media Liaison Miranda Bowersox said "technicians worked quickly to identify the problem, in an effort to restore normal 9-1-1 service to the citizens of Butte County as soon as possible. The technical difficulties were due to a power outage that occurred last night. Butte County Communications is currently investigating the problem".
