The 911 system, in our county and other counties in the state, are not functioning properly, especially when using a cell phone. Phone numbers that will connect you with the 911 system, instead of using 911, have been issued to different counties. In Gibson County, for an emergency, call 731-562-8176. In Carroll County, call 731-986-8947. It is also advised to use these numbers even if using a land line, because there is not a certainty that dialing 911 from a land line will activate the emergency response system.
