Service Affecting Phone Outage
Two fiber cuts in the southern part of the state are causing issues for emergency and long distance calls as well as all off network traffic, such as wireless phone calls. These cuts are preventing calls to 911.
If you have an emergency and live within Ward County, please dial 701-852-0111 from a landline phone to reach Minot Dispatch.
If you live outside Ward County and have an emergency, please call your local police department from a landline phone.
The issues are being investigated and further information will be provided.
