911 outage fixed in Vermont
MONTPELIER -- Vermont officials say the 911 system is back up and running after a 40 minute outage on Wednesday.
The system was restored around 1 p.m. and has been fully operational since that time. Authorities say the system is hosted by a Colorado company called Intrado, who issued a statement about the reason for the outage: "Intrado goes to great lengths to design networks with multiple layers of redundancy. On August 6, 2014 we experienced a double equipment failure in our network."
Officials say they have attempted to call all of the individuals who were unable to get through to 911 during the outage. They say it appears that everyone who had an emergency was able to get help from local police or other emergency responders.
