  • Conn. police: Cable outage not 911-worthy

    FAIRFIELD, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut police department wants people to know that missing your favorite show isn’t an emergency.

    Fairfield police say they received numerous 911 calls about a cable outage that hit parts of southwestern Connecticut on Sunday night.

    The message on the department’s Facebook page says the outage is “neither an emergency or a police related concern.”

    The post warns that 911 should be used for life-threatening emergencies only and misuse of the 911 system may result in an arrest.

    Cablevision said in a statement shortly after 11 p.m. that there was a commercial power outage in its Norwalk facility. It says “the power matter has been resolved and service has been restored to our customers.”
