911 Goes Down Across the Country: Was This a TEST?

• Organic Prepper - Robert Wheeler

As we inch closer and closer to election day and the potential chaos that will ensue, more and more signs of a destabilization of American society that will have reverberations across the world are coming into view. Pieces of the puzzle that have been put together by writers such as myself, Brandon Turbeville, Whitney Webb, Alan Watt and many others are now seen coming together in real life. We are just a month away from one of the most simulated events in years, the 2020 election.

Both I and Whitney Webb (her articles are a MUST READ) have been writing about the coming chaos that is clearly slated to take place in November if Deep State elements have their way.

But there are more than simple "war games" and simulations taking place right now. What possibly amounts to real-world simulations, attributed to systems outages, have recently developed across the country.

911 down across the country

One such "real world simulation," (aka test run) was reported in the U.S. Sun on September 28, 2020 in an article entitled, "911 Emergency: 911 Lines Go Down Across The US Sparking Panic As Callers Can't Get Through To Emergency Services," where Catherina Gioina reported,

POLICE departments across the country Monday night reported their 911 systems nonoperational – and it's reportedly due to a Microsoft Office 360 [sic] outage.

"As of 5 p.m., City phones and emails are experiencing intermittent outages related to a larger Microsoft 365 outage," the City of Redmond, Washington tweeted. "We are hoping the issue is resolved shortly. Sorry for any inconvenience."

Panic spread across the nation's police departments as the 911 systems were rendered useless – and left police departments turning to social media to tell residents there were other ways to contact emergency services.

"ATTENTION: The 911 lines are not operational nationwide. This is for phone calls and text messaging," tweeted the Minneapolis Police Department. "If you need police, fire or emergency medical assistance in Minneapolis, please call" a local number.

"We will advise when this issue is fixed," it ended.

Similar problems continued for other police departments in the state of Minnesota.

The Minnetonka Police Department tweeted "911 lines are out nationwide. In Minnetonka and Hennepin county, you will need to call" another local number.

Minnesota's Crystal Police Department instead urged residents to call their local fire station for help instead.

"911 is currently out in Crystal. If you have an emergency please go a fire department," it tweeted. "They will be staffed with crews. More to follow when info becomes available."

The issue was likewise felt in Delaware, where the Delaware State Police asked people to call a local number.

"Delaware State Police Dispatch Centers are currently experiencing a state wide interruption in service," the dispatch center said in a statement. "Anyone attempting to call 911 either by cellphone or landline will experience a busy signal."

"At this time the issue is being addressed and it is unknown how long the 911 phone service will be unavailable," the statement continued. "If you need to report an emergency, you are encouraged to text 911 and type your emergency in the message field."

A number of police departments in Arizona were running into issues with 911 as well.

"POLICE ALERT: 911 lines are down statewide. For emergencies, please call Prescott Valley Police Dispatch at," the Prescott Valley Police Department tweeted "until further notice."

Also in Arizona, the Tucson Police Department asked residents to contact a local number as well.

"911 services are down in the City of Tucson. If you need to make an emergency call, dial," the department tweeted. "We will let you know when 911 is back online."

Luckily, the Oro Valley Police Department, also in Arizona, said they had solved the issue.

"It's fixed! 911 is back up for all agencies! We did take this opportunity to test the "Text to 911″ and that did continue to work through this outage," the department tweeted. "So keep that in mind, it is another way to contact police services."

Microsoft Office 360's [sic] outage crashed across the nation Monday evening, forcing the more than 500,000 businesses that use the service to make do while the tech giant addresses the issue.

A Microsoft spokesperson told The Sun: "We're working to resolve a service interruption impacting a subset of customers performing authentication operations. Visit the Azure Status page for updates."

CNNThe Hill, and NBC New York among many other outlets reported on the outages also.
