Frontier Communications has advised us of a major telephone outage in coastal Douglas County. All phone service to the 271 exchange is out, this includes the 911 phone system. Frontier does not have a time line for fixing the problem, they are currently working on it.

If coastal residents have an emergency and need to contact 911 they can still get through on a cellular phone. Residents may also go to the Reedsport Police Department to report their emergency. The Police Department has contact with the 911 center via cellular phone.
