Posted on July 15, 2019 at 6:07 PM by Sarah Vaine

The Summit County 911 Center is experiencing outages due to regional network problems.  If you are experiencing an emergency, please call 911. If you cannot get through to 911, please send a text to 911 and include your address and the nature of your emergency.  You can also physically go to any fire or police station for assistance.  This incident is not isolated to Summit County.  The telephone network outages are affecting many areas in western Colorado.
