Problems with the system's telephone service provider caused disruptions
of up to 14 minutes. "We've got to make sure that doesn't happen again,"
Mayor Michael Bloomberg said Sunday.
[...]
The disruptions were caused by the failure of a backup diesel generator at
the Verizon Communications office that supplies power to the city's 911
headquarters in downtown Brooklyn, company spokesman John Bonomo said.
[...]
On Sunday, nine police precincts were still experiencing problems
connecting to the department's main computer system, stemming from
disruptions with their cable modem connections.
