Trinity Center / Coffee Creek - Telecommunications Outage (January 20, 2023)

911-only service has been restored as of January 20, 2023 at 9:00PM. Please be aware that while residents can make outgoing 911 calls, Dispatch will not be able to return calls but will see the Caller ID and Deputies will be able to respond to the address. Trinity County residents can also contact Dispatch for emergencies via email at

Trinity County OES is aware of the telecommunications outage currently impacting Trinity Center and Coffee Creek and is in contact with the California Office of Emergency Services and TDS Telecom. The current status of repair efforts as relayed by TDS Telecom is that they are waiting for the ice on their microwave tower on Shasta Bally to melt. They are monitoring the tower remotely, and once the ice melts, they can begin repairs. They expect to have regular service restored by next week. In the meantime, they have temporary equipment in place to provide temporary 911-only access while permanent repairs are being made. We will provide updates as we receive them here, and on the Trinity County OES Facebook page at

All landline, VOIP, and mobile telecommunication service providers in California that provide 911 services are required to post outage maps. The TDS Telecom outage map is available at

TDS customers with specific questions can contact TDS Telecom at 1-888-233-0001 or online at

Customers who are unable to resolve problems with their utility provider can contact the California Public Utilities Commission at 1-800-649-7570 or can file a complaint online at
