"Power outage blamed for 111 malfunction"
You could be mistaken for thinking that there was a failure of the 111 system couldn't you? But no there wasn't, all that happened was that one of the three communications centres for the Police and New Zealand Fire Service suffered a power fault last night which resulted in all calls being diverted to Wellington and all communications with Police and Fire being handled in Wellington. This is something that is planned for and regularly occurs during training for such an event.
There was no malfunction of the 111 service. There was a malfunction in the communication centre that handles Police and Fire communications.
