Cut line causes 911 calls to be rerouted

Print Article

A construction crew Thursday morning cut a fiber optic line in the Kalispell area that caused 911 calls to stop being delivered to the Flathead Emergency Communication Center.

The lines were rerouted to Missoula 911 after unsuccessful attempts to reroute the calls to the emergency communication center’s administrative phone lines and to the backup system in Whitefish due to the location of the fiber cut, according to a press release from Flathead 911 Emergency Communication’s Center.

A local Century Link crew is working to repair the line. The emergency communication center expected to have the work completed Thursday afternoon.

Flathead County 911 calls were to be answered by Missoula 911 until the service was restored.
