An emergency emergency. For second time in two weeks, 911 wires cut in Arkansas

Construction of a parking lot near the Saline County 911 Building in Benton, Arkansas made it necessary to re-route calls Monday after workmen accidentally cut the communication lines.

All emergency calls were patched through, so there was no danger in someone not getting emergency services.

A similar incident occurred last week and the same emergency procedure was used then to temporarily correct the situation. (info from The Courier)
