Waterford, Michigan -- Oakland County government is experiencing trouble with local incoming and outgoing phone calls because its carrier is experiencing a network problem in their system. Callers who have a critical need may call the county’s switchboard at 1-888-350-0900 and ask the operator to transfer the call to a county department or division.
Other toll-free numbers to reach some county departments directly include:
Oakland County Sheriff Dispatch 800-647-3334
Health Division 866-683-7191
Nurse on Call 800-848-5533
Friend of the Court 800-357-4507
Work Force Development 800-742-5463
Oakland County Parks & Rec 888-627-2757
Callers whose issues are not urgent are asked to call back after regular service has been restored. At this time, it is not clear when that will be. Incoming and outgoing long distance calls are not affected because they are handled by another service provider.
