Some northwest Iowa communities that receive their phone service from Frontier Communications will be without 9-1-1 service overnight.
Residents in Kingsley, Pierson, and Washta will be affected between 11pm tonight (Thursday) and 5am Friday.
Frontier will be doing a fiber cutover which will limit outgoing calls for Frontier customers, including long distance and emergency 911 calls.
In case of an emergency during this time frame, please use a cell phone to call 911.
If you do not have a cell phone , please contact a neighbor who does.
During the outage any non-local and 911 calls will ring busy from a landline utilizing Frontier services.
