Original story:

Sheriff Steven McCain with the Grant Parish Sheriff's Department has announced that some landline phone numbers will be unable to call 911.

He said that any landline phones beginning with the prefix "827" in the Georgetown area will be unable to reach any emergency services from a 911 call.

If you have a landline phone with that prefix and you need to make an emergency call, please call this number: 318-627-3261.

AT&T is currently working to get this issue resolved as quickly as possible.

Again, this only concerns LANDLINE phones, not cell phones.
