Dialing 911 from VoIP

Dialing 911 from Internet Phone

  • VoIP – Voice over Internet Protocol is still a fairly new technology, using internet rather than traditional phone lines. This type of phone may not be as reliable in an emergency, especially during a power outage in which they may not work at all.
  • VoIP calls may forward to the 911 center, but may not transmit any location or phone information.
  • VoIP calls forward to the nearest 911 center based on the address given to VoIP providers. If you move, be sure to update your address to prevent emergency services from responding to the incorrect location.
