Cell Service May Be an Issue During Wyoming Eclipse
Here is an issue that is being addressed in Natrona County as well.
JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — The Teton County emergency manager is concerned about cellphone service during the Aug. 21 solar eclipse because of the thousands of extra visitors expected in the Jackson Hole region in northwest Wyoming.
County emergency coordinator Rich Ochs says there's real concern about the local public cell system being overloaded.
People unable to connect to the system during an emergency will be able to text 911.
But Ochs tells the Jackson Hole News & Guide (http://bit.ly/2vo4Egl) that voice 911 calls are preferred.
Representatives of Verizon Wireless and AT&T say they are taking steps to boost and improve service during the eclipse.
