A telecommunications network outage disrupted 911 calls in Massa-
chusetts and across the country Friday, creating confusion among
first responders and exposing a major weakness in the emergency
response network.

CenturyLink Inc., one of the nation's largest telecom providers, said
a technical problem led to failed 911 calls made by cellphones in many
parts of the country. The Louisiana-based company said Thursday night
that it expected service to be restored in four hours, but the job
took until about 8 p.m. Friday to complete.
