Phone directory has wrong number for 4 fire depts.
HOPKINTON, R.I.—A phone directory that covers several communities in southern Rhode Island lists the wrong numbers for four fire departments.
The Westerly Sun (bit.ly/TtkeOm) reports that Yellowbook's 2012-13 telephone directory for Narragansett, Newport and Westerly lists the phone number of a private residence instead of the number for the Carolina Fire Department in Richmond.
Those who call numbers listed for fire departments in Richmond and the villages of Wood River Junction and Wyoming in Richmond will instead get a police dispatcher in Charlestown.
Hope Valley-Wyoming Fire Chief Fred Stanley says he worries an emergency call will go to a private residence and ring with no answer.
Yellowbook did not immediately comment.
