911 service back in several Michigan counties, still out for some
Thu, 03 Oct 2013 10:10:22 GMT —
A cut fiber line was the apparent cause of many 911 services being down in the northeastern Lower Peninsula yesterday and into today.
The Associated Press is reporting that Alpena, Oscoda, Otsego, Preque Isle and Roscommon counties have all been restored as of Wednesday night.
However, the towns of Standish and Alger in Arenac County still appear to be having issues. Anyone in those towns using Frontier for their landline service are unable to connect to 911 at this time, according to Arenac County Central Dispatch.
If you are in one of those towns, you are asked to use a cellphone or go to the fire bard in Standish or Alger.
It is not know when service will be restored in those towns.
