E911 Federal Compliance Assessment for Microsoft Teams Customers
Ready for E911?
As of February 2022, Kari’s Law and Ray Baum’s Act are in full effect. This presents significant requirements around 911 direct dialing, notification, and dispatchable locations.
What Does This Mean?
Federal law now requires a dispatchable location, which is the place a person is calling from – not just the address. This includes things like floor level, warehouse location, and other easily identifiable information to help first responders get there fast.
In addition to the phone call reaching emergency services without having to dial a prefix, a notification must be sent to your organization that an emergency call has been placed. The notification must include information about the caller (and a valid callback number) as well as their location.
