9-1-1 service restored in Bucks County

Monday, January 23, 2012

9-1-1 service has been restored across Lower Bucks County, after a nearly 4 hour outage.

People calling from 10 different exchanges could not get through from a landline from 5:30 p.m. to 9:15 p.m.

Authorities say it was due to a routing problem on the Verizon phone lines.

Cell phone 9-1-1 service remained operational.

The outage affected parts of 8 municipalities.
