WCU telephone service to be disrupted Wednesday

A telephone system upgrade planned at Western Carolina University on Wednesday, Nov. 21, will disrupt campus landline service, but backup telephone numbers will be available for anyone needing emergency services.

Maintenance will be under way on the telephone system and service will be affected from 6 to 8 p.m. During that period, emergency services can be summoned by calling 828-293-1841 or by dialing 911 to reach Jackson County Emergency Communications.
