Phone issues affecting 911 emergency service
There are several issues affecting cellular and landline telephone service Wednesday in various parts of St. Louis and Carlton counties, making it difficult for people to reach 911 emergency services.
In Buhl, both CenturyLink landlines and AT&T cell service have been interrupted. The Buhl Ambulance Hall on Jones Avenue has staff on site, so anyone needing assistance who is unable to reach 911 should report any emergency directly to Ambulance Hall.
For those having difficulty with cell service, the best option if you need to reach 911 is to use a landline. AT&T and the Carlton County Sheriff’s Office are recommending customers who can enable Wi-Fi calling to do so.
