MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — An apparent technical problem that prevented Sprint wireless users from dialing 911 to report emergencies in
Berkeley and Jefferson counties has been resolved, officials said.

Dispatchers who had received 911 calls via Sprint were unable to hear the caller since Thursday afternoon, emergency dispatch officials said.

As of 10 p.m. Thursday night, however, service was restored to print wireless users, said officials in both counties.

The 911 dispatch center in Jefferson County can be reached at 304-725-8484 and in Berkeley County
at 304-263-1330.
