SALIDA, Colo. (CBS4)– Hundreds of people living in Central Colorado are unable to dial 911 on Tuesday due to a massive Verizon and Charter landline phone outage caused by the Spring Fire.
Chaffee County officials confirm the 911 dispatch center is functioning but customers who rely on Verizon to make emergency calls can not get through.
There is no estimate on when the issue will be remedied.
The outage and stress on the remaining system is impacting people in Salida, Buena Vista, Leadville, Fairplay and other small towns in the area.
