911 lines restored in Adams, Columbia, Juneau, Marquette counties

MAUSTON, Wis. - The 911 lines in four Wisconsin counties were not working for more than five hours Monday but are functioning again, officials said. 

The Juneau County Sheriff's Office said at about 12:30 p.m. that the emergency 911 lines in the county were down. The large-scale outage also covered Adams, Columbia and Marquette counties. Anyone who called 911 in those areas during the outage would hear the line ring as busy. 



Frontier Communications told News 3 that the lines were back up around 6 p.m. Monday.

"We thank our customers and the communities we serve for their patience as our team works to restore service as quickly and safely as possible," said Andy Malinoski, the public relations director for Frontier.

Adams County sent an alert at 6:10 p.m. saying that its 911 services were back up. Columbia, Juneau and Marquette counties announced their services were restored shortly thereafter.
