Cedar Rapids having problems with 911 calls from cell phones

Posted: Updated:
CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -
The City of Cedar Rapids says they're having problems getting 911 calls that have been placed from cell phones.
Those calls have been rerouted to Johnson County 911 dispatchers, and they've been in contact with Cedar Rapids emergency personnel so there hasn't been a problem getting people help.
However, if you need to call 911 from a cell phone, the city suggests you use a landline or call (319) 286-5491.
The city is working with the state to fix the problem.
