E-911 disrupted temporarily

Emergency services providers across Cherokee County were sent scrambling last week when an electrical issue knocked out Cherokee County E-911 service.

“There was a period of time we had a blackout,” confirmed Cherokee County Administrator Holland Belue. He could not say exactly how long the service was impacted.

Belue said the E-911 department is undergoing major renovations.

“As we were starting to remove some of the infrastructure (in the E-911 office) we ended up with an electrical fault,” Belue said. “That led to a power failure.”

Only the E-911 department was impacted. All fire stations in Cherokee County were manned during the outage.
