UPDATE: City of Oakwood phone lines -- including police, fire -- back in service

UPDATE @ 10:37 p.m.: The phone lines for all city of Oakwood administration and police/fire non-emergency lines (937-298-2122) are back in service, according to a statement from a city official.


A cut in fiber optic lines in Dayton is causing the city of Oakwood to experience phone outages.

The phones will be down for an undetermined length of time, city officials said in a statement released this afternoon.

If you need to contact the Public Safety NON EMERGENCY line, please call 937-608-1593.

If you have an emergency, Public Safety’s 9-1-1 lines still function properly.

Residential and business phone lines apparently are not affected, a city official said.

We will update this developing report as warranted.
