Disconnecting unused phone lines

Postby russellhltn » Mon Jul 02, 2018 1:53 pm

"Surveys and usage data indicate that landline telephones in most of our meetinghouses are rarely used. This unused service is a significant expense to the Church. The decision has been made to identify and disconnect all nonessential landline telephone service in meetinghouses in the United States and Canada."

The STS, Stake President and FM Assistant is to work together to identify the phone lines.

More details can be found at letters.lds.org (for those whose callings grant access).

The STS in each of the stakes within our FM group's area had a deadline of June 30th to complete an online survey for each building. In the survey, we entered which lines to cancel and which needed to be kept. In our case, the only lines kept were the ones connected to fire alarms, an emergency communication line in the stake center, the line associated with the DSL service in one building and the lines we use for audio backup during conference webcasts. All ward office, hall/library phone lines are being cancelled.
