What does E911 compliance require?
Calling 911 does not require an outside access key — press * to dial out — common in hotels and offices.
A call to 911 relays the detailed, physical location of the phone — down to the room number, floor, or office number.
Police, fire, and paramedics are also given the phone’s exact information so they are sent to the correct location, avoiding any delay reaching the emergency.
If disconnected, emergency dispatchers can call the phone back directly without getting an auto-attendant, answering service, call center, or remote switchboard.
911 calls connect to the agency within closest proximity to the caller — not the central phone system’s location (e.g., corporate headquarters).
We’ve already built this into our phone systems,
so you’d be covered
and you’d be safe,
from day one
…and, it’s the law.
