SHARE NOW

The Colona Police Department has secured 12 911 only cellular phones from the Henry County Office of Emergency Management.  The phones are available at the Colona Police Department based on urgent need only, such as senior citizens without a cell phone or high risk individuals without phone service.  Reach out to the Colona Police if you need a 911 only phone and they will also show you how to operate the phone.

Our earlier story: A major AT&T outage leaves Colona customers without phone service. The Colona Police Department released a statement on Facebook that Colona Residents will be without phone service from AT&T until February.  The Colona Police Department spoke with AT&T and confirmed the outage is expected to be corrected on February 2nd, according to the statement.  The statement said “This outage unfortunately affects many senior citizens that do not have cell phones to use in an emergency.  We are urging people if you have elderly neighbors, relatives etc living in the affected area to check on them and possibly provide them with a cell phone for emergency use”.  The Colona Police Department said they are checking into alternatives to address the issue
