The outages that were preventing central Pennsylvanians from making non-emergency calls on landline phones have been resolved in at least one county.
Perry County said around noon that an issue which prevented CenturyLink subscribers from placing calls was fixed. During an hours-long outage this morning, the county’s Emergency Management Agency advised residents to request public safety services by calling 911 on a cell phone.
Lumen, CenturyLink’s parent company, said crews are working on addressing ongoing outage issues in Cumberland and Belleville County.
“We are aware some customers in the Carlisle/Belleville, Pennsylvania, area are experiencing voice service disruptions,” spokesman Matthew Villarreal said in an email. “Our Lumen technicians are working as quickly as possible to resolve the issue.”
Cumberland County’s communications department around 9 a.m. said ten-digit, non-emergency calls were not getting through in the Carlisle area to the Department of Public Safety. County residents who need non-emergency assistance from fire, EMS or law enforcement are encouraged to call 911 until phone services are restored.
A spokesman for the Cumberland County Communications Department could not immediately say Thursday afternoon whether the outages were universally resolved.
