As of 12:30 p.m. on Friday, December 28, 2018, 911 calls from cell phones and land lines were being properly routed to Somerville police and fire departments. Sporadic outages being made from cell phones to 911 are still being reported across the region, so please add these important local emergency telephone numbers to your contacts in case of an emergency, for today and for future use:
Somerville Police Department (for public safety emergencies): 617-625-1212
Somerville Fire Department (for fire and health emergencies): 617-623-1500
Always call 911 first. If you receive a busy signal or are not immediately routed to the police or fire department, hang up and dial the local emergency number(s) above. For this past week’s outages, only 911 calls from cell phones are impacted, but again, 911 calls to Somerville are currently being routed correctly.
