Shields Valley to have a phone service interruption Tuesday

Park County Emergency Management announces a phone service interruption in Wilsall and surrounding areas.

Phone service will be interrupted Tuesday, May 2, at 12:01 a.m. in Clyde Park areas due to a construction project. This will last from 30 minutes to 2 hours. There will be no cellular phone service during this time and landline phones will not be able to call into or out of the area.

911 emergency calls from landline phones will be routed to local fire departments. You will not be able to call 911 on your cell phone. If you only have a cell phone and need emergency assistance during the outage, go to the Wilsall fire department or the Clyde Park Town Hall. Be sure to check your phone first to see if service has been restored before going to the fire station or town hall.

This interruption was originally scheduled for April 24 but was rescheduled to May 2 due to a Century Link scheduling error.

If you have questions, contact Greg Coleman at 223-4866.
