911 calls in Kalispell re-routing due to cut fiber

Posted: Updated:

A construction crew accidentally cut a fiber optic line in the Kalispell area causing 911 calls to stop being delivered to the Flathead Emergency Communication Center. 

The FECC immediately moved forward to handle the issue. After multiple efforts failed to re-route calls to teh FECC's administrative phones and to the backup PSAP in Whitefish, the lines were re-routed to Missoula 911. 

A local Centurylink crew is working to repair the fiber line and it is estimated that this work should be complete by early to late afternoon. Flathead County 911 calls will continue to be answered in Missoula until service is restored.
