Terrace RCMP are advising the public of technical difficulties being experienced when calling 911.
Problems with a fibrotic line have created limited communication between Terrace and its Communications Centre. The interruption in service occurred earlier this evening, July 5, 2017. It is unknown if it will have an impact on those trying to use 911. The interruption is not isolated and is affecting other detachments in the province as well.
As a precaution, Terrace RCMP are asking those requiring police assistance to call the local detachment number: 250-638-7400, which will be operated by staff until midnight as part of a contingency plan.
