Verizon Cellular Service Outage Reported in Laramie
Albany County dispatchers are asking Verizon customers with an emergency to call Laramie police dispatch instead of 911 until the company can restore services.
A news release from Albany County Emergency Coordinator Aimee Binning sent shortly after 4 p.m. Monday says the agency has been notified by Verizon that the company is having unspecified utility problems.
Local residents using a Verizon phone who need help in an emergency should call dispatch at 307-721-2526 instead of 911 until the outage is resolved.
The county also sent out a Code Red message alerting people to the issue.
Verizon could not immediately be reached for comment.
