UPDATE (10:05 a.m.) - Sheriff's officials say Verizon fixed an issue with 911 service for its customers just after 9 a.m. Friday.

Officials have not elaborated on why calls to 911 were not able to go through to dispatchers. 

The outage started just after midnight Friday, according to the sheriff's office. 

Calls to 911 by Verizon customers in San Luis Obispo County will not go through Friday morning.

The San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's Office says Verizon is working to correct an "unidentified issue" with 911 service. 

In case of an emergency, sheriff's officials advise everyone to have their local fire department and law enforcement agency phone numbers written down. 

However, for those in the Five Cities area, Five Cities Fire Authority says emergency calls should go through the Grover Beach Police Department at (805) 473-4511.

The text to 911 service is still working for Verizon customers.
