CenturyLink working on 911 backup system in Colorado [telecom]

By ELISE THATCHER June 2, 2015

In Colorado, Pitkin and Garfield Counties are trying to figure out why

911 systems went down during a communications blackout last week. Pitkin County Emergency Dispatch Director Bruce Romero wants answers on a couple of issues. First, why wasn't it possible to at least call 911?

"Generally CenturyLink would have actual backup systems," said Romero Tuesday. "Not only other lines in the ground but microwave systems that could do a back up. And for some reason that didn't work."
