Barberton City Hall was without phone lines Wednesday. The company that provides voice and data network for the City had a component break in its Pittsburgh switching center. At first, Fire and Police were not effected but at 9 am Wednesday only the 911 line was active. The city was able to switch to a backup system till 4 pm. The broken part was identified by 4 pm and replaced.
Did you even know the City of Barberton phones were disabled? The City did a good job of working around the problem. And as long as 911 is working, the rest is less important.
