Repairs completed at PA police, fire phone system

PORT ARTHUR — Repairs to the non-emergency phone lines at Port Arthur police and fire departments were completed on Friday.

Phone lines to the departments were temporarily disrupted for several days while the repairs were completed. The repairs were necessary as the phone systems were switched from analog to digital, PAPD Maj. John Owens said.

“Rather then take all of the phone lines down at once internally we were having to do it piecemeal,” Owens said.

The work was completed Friday morning.
