DURANGO, Colo. (AP) -- A dozen 911 emergency communications centers across Colorado have filed complaints with state regulators over 911 outages in June and July.

The complaints were filed with the Colorado Public Utilities Commission. Most of the agencies are on the Western Slope.

According to the Durango Herald, during some outages, 911 calls were handled by other call centers.

The complaints were filed against CenturyLink, Charter Communications, Tri-State Generation & Transmission Association and other telephone providers.

The companies did not return phone calls Thursday seeking comment.
