LOVELOCK - The Pershing County Sheriff's Office has been having a lot of problems with people calling the sheriff's office to find out why their power is out or how long the power is going to out. The PCSO does not have that information.

"If the power is out because of an emergency, our dispatchers are really busy and do not have time to field calls that should be directed to the power company," PCSO Clerk Sheila Reitz said.

The emergency number for NV Energy is (800) 962-0399.
