Major phone problems hit Pitkin County

ASPEN – Land-based phone lines and some cellphone services went down across Pitkin County on Thursday night.

The extent of the outage, which started around 9:30 p.m., was unknown, according to a statement from the county. All nonemergency and 911 lines for the 911 Center in Aspen were down. Emergency calls were being rerouted to Vail Public Safety Communications.

If the outage persists and you have an emergency, the county recommends attempting a call to 911. If you have no phone service, make your way to the nearest police station, Sheriff’s Office substation or hospital, depending on your emergency. Century Link is aware of the problem and was working to resolve it late Thursday.
