Hard Line wire connection for Senior/Veteran who needs LIFE LINE.

My husband is a senior and a Vietnam verteran. He is home alone and it is imperitive that we have a "hard wired" phone. We moved into our prewar aparment on 5/11/17. Verizon service came on 5/12/17 and we weretold  that there was no signal to our apartment from basement box. After 1 visit from dispatch, it was determined that a new copper line was needed as the existing ones were not working. I have made over 15 calls to Verizon support and as of today 8/17/17, we have gotten no further than we were on 5/12/17. This is a matter of safety for my family. Everything stops at dispatch. I was even told that Fios MAY be coming into the area next year, so they will not do the repairs. This is Verizon equiptment. I need this copper line. IT truly could be a Life situation. WHy will you not help us and give us the line?
