Bagdad Community Members,

 The Freeport-McMoRan Bagdad MIS Department has received numerous calls reporting that Verizon Wireless cell phone coverage has been significantly degraded since our last big storm event. We have been in contact with Verizon Wireless regarding these issues and Verizon is working to upgrade equipment in Sycamore to restore and improve cell phone coverage. It is anticipated that this upgrade should be completed by the end of the year. We are working with Verizon to expedite this process as much as possible.

 If you experience cell phone coverage issues in Sycamore, please report these issues directly to Verizon. You can reach them at (800) 922-0204 or dial 611 from your Verizon Wireless mobile phone.

 Thank you,

David Hernandez
