Sure, but how does VZ know which phone lines are which? They're all the same to them unless the FD gets on a special classification in their system. Obviously they did not do that and were probably on a pure consumer-tier small business plan.

What gets me is Santa Clara County, with an area of the State of Rhode Island and twice the population, must have a coffee and donut budget in the thousands per month.

Why couldn't they arrange something like, "When we go live, we need to own the internet, because lives are at stake. Give us your price and written guarantee."

not only that, but Santa Clara County is basically Silicon Valley. If there is one place where they could find an innovative solution for good communication, that should be it.
