  1. No abla english? What the #$%^&?
    I got the same thing on my cell phone, this dual language thing has been
    out of control for years, You know, I’m for the human race, but we live
    in what used to be a one language country, now, it’s just things like this
    that get under people’s skin.
    I don’t even know what else to add, without 911, just call the non-emergency
    # would be my next bet, route it through where?, and how long does that add to a response time, my Dad needed 911 several times before he passed, and our infrastructure apparently does need some help.

  2. My cell phone is with spectrum and I’ve had no service since about 10am, shortly before receiving the emergency notification. Spectrum said there was an outage in Eugene but couldn’t give me an eta or info on anything closer

  3. My message was on my land line and unfortunately all in SPANISH……what gives?????
    finally, I tried hitting the 0 button….then it came on in English. They need to get things straight.
