PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT!
On Friday August 7th, 2015 there will be three communities in Mower and Fillmore counties that will have interrupted phone service while needed repairs are being done to the phone lines. This will occur between the hours of 2am to 5am and will affect the communities of Grand Meadow and Racine in Mower county and Wykoff in Fillmore county. This interruption will only affect service to phone lines that have the following prefixes of 507-754, 507-378, 507-352 and cell phones if used in this area. There will be times when there will only be local calling service to phones that have the same prefixes as the one they are calling from. During this time if you need emergency service from Law Enforcement, Fire or Medical and you are unable to get through on 911 we have set up the following local numbers that can be dialed from local phones that have the same prefixes as the one they are calling from. Grand Meadow number is 507-754-5150, Racine is 507-378-2931 and Wykoff is 507-352-4011. All three numbers will have emergency personnel standing by to take the calls and will be able to relay the info by radio to the appropriate agencies. It is not anticipated that the repairs will take the full 3 hours but we want to make sure that help is available to those that need it.
If we can ever be of assistance to you or your family, please contact us.
