911 service restored after nationwide AT&T Wireless outage

DENVER — AT&T Wireless customers who called 911 were having trouble getting their calls to go through Wednesday night during a nationwide outage, the Denver Police Department said.

The problem only affected AT&T Wireless customers and the company said the problem was resolved around 8:15 p.m.

Denver police provided instructions about how to send a text message to 911 if calling doesn’t work.
