Communications failure is affecting 911 calling capability in various parts of the country, and the Massachusetts State Police believe local emergency calls may be affected.
CenturyLink reported a network outage at 13:00 in the morning. Thursday.  At 6:43 am, the company reported that technicians were discovering additional, unexpected issues that delayed their repairs.
Early Friday morning, state police spokesman Dave Procopio said the department had disrupted 911 calls from cellphones in Massachusetts by the CenturyLink outage. Residents who can not call 911 emergency services may instead call the full 10-digit number of their local police department or an emergency call center for public safety call points.
