NOTICE OF SERVICE DISRUPTION

Land-based Phone Service Disruption impacting Sagamok Community

Issued September 30, 2019

To:        Sagamok Anishnawbek Community

 

From:   Tammy Manitowabi, Director of Operations

 

CC:        Bruce Southwind,  Emergency Services Coordinator

Please be advised that there continues to be a phone (and fax) service disruption impacting most of Sagamok's buildings and residences. 

 

Phone service disruption appears to be only impacting land-based systems and not affecting mobile phone services (including Sagamok's After-Hours Support Line).  Internet connectivity appears to be unaffected as well, allowing for communications via email. 

 

Technicians are in the community and working on addressing the service disruption but at this time, we do not know when service may be restored. 

 

Until phone services are restored, for urgent medical or transportation matters, please call the temporary mobile phone number we have set up during this service disruption to ensure service continuity at (705) 863-2761.  [Please note that this number will not be available once land based phone service has been restored]

 

Sagamok community members are asked to check on their Elders, shut-ins and other vulnerable people in the Sagamok community who may have need for phone use and are without mobile phone service to ensure that they are well and without need during this phone service disruption. 

 

……………………………

……………………………

Sagamok’s buildings and homes are without land-based telephone service

Please visit Elders, shut-ins and other vulnerable members of your families and friends to ensure that they are well and without need during this phone service disruption
