Earlier today it was reported a cell tower collapsed in N. Arizona and the reason for the lack of cell service and long distance phone service in Young. There is no report of how long repairs will take in order for service to be restored. Email seems to be working fine and local calls are not affected. This evening, it was reported on Phoenix TV news a fiber optic cable was cut in Anthem (north of Phoenix) which has affected towns as far North as Flagstaff.
Chief Lollman sent a message back in December as to the procedures to follow when cell phone service is out. Please review these procedures in the event you have an emergency. It has been confirmed Young is not able to contact the Gila County Sheriff’s office by dialing 911.
If you have an emergency, call the PVFD Fire Department land line at 462-3489 and leave a message stating your emergency. The PVFD members and our dispatchers will hear your phone call (via hand held radios) and respond accordingly. We will be able to contact outside emergency services via radio communication with the Gila County Sheriff’s office.
Please note: This procedure is to be used only if cell phone service is out and you cannot reach 911 via cell or land line.
