Verizon / Chris Young

Columbia County Commission Chair Chris Young is asking the Federal Communications Commission to launch an investigation into the blackout of Verzion Wireless. The system went out in an eighteen county area of northeast and central PA recently... prompting outages to 9-1-1 centers... including Columbia. The outage could of prevented people from getting Emergency Medical Service... or report a fire. The bottom line is the issue should be resolved soon before someone dies as the result of Verizon's mishandling of the problem.
