RE: 911 Services will be TEMPORARILY DOWN in the Bridgeport Area beginning at midnight
The 911 lines will be TEMPORARILY unavailable tonight, Thursday, July 18, 2013/Friday, July 19, 2013, from approximately midnight (12:00am) until approximately 2:00am in the Bridgeport area due to some work Verizon will be conducting.
If you have an emergency between midnight and 2:00am, the Mono County Sheriff’s Office business lines will still be in operation. Please call (760) 932-7549 and press 7 for dispatch. The outage is only projected to last for these 2-hours and will affect the Bridgeport area. The local fire stations in the Bridgeport area will not be manned, so please remember to call the business lines if you have an emergency. If 911 is dialed during this outage, it will be routed to Inyo County and they will notify our dispatch of the emergency. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
