Power surge knocks out Glynn County communications

42

A power surge that occurred early Tuesday caused a failure in an essential piece of Glynn County’s networking equipment. As a result, Glynn County offices are experiencing an outage in phone and email communications. This outage effects all Glynn County offices including, the Court System, the Detention Center, the Police Department, the Fire Departments, the Libraries, Recreation and Parks, Animal Control, Public Works and all offices in the W. Harold Pate building. The customer service phone line is also down as a result of this outage.

911 operates on a different system, is functional, and is able to communicate with public safety.

This outage is expected to continue until the vital equipment, which has been rush ordered, is received and replaced. Updates will be available on the Glynn County website at www.GlynnCounty.org and the Glynn County Board of Commissioners Facebook page at www.facebook.com/glynncountyboc.

The Board of Commissioners Work Session, scheduled for 2 p.m. Tuesday will proceed as scheduled. It will not be live streamed but it will be recorded and posted later for viewing.

This issue is internal to Glynn County offices and does not extend to the City of Brunswick or other agencies within Glynn County.
