Emergency calls restored, says NT RCMP

The Northwest Territories RCMP says residents in the territory should now be able to reach their local detachment, following disruption to communication services.

On Thursday, police said the disruption affected cell phone, long distance calling, landlines and internet service – mainly involving Telus. Services in Yellowknife and most NWT communities were down or operating intermittently.

As a result, police said there may have be some technical difficulties with emergency phone service including calls to local RCMP detachments, fire departments, and 911.
