1. EMERGENCY SERVICES – 911 Dialling  THROUGH VoIP Services

Rangtel provides a form of 911 service (911 Dialling ) that is similar to traditional 911 service but has some important differences and limitations when compares with enhanced 911 service (E911) available in most locations in conjunction with traditional telephone service. With both traditional 911 and E911 Dialling  service, your call is sent directly to the closest emergency response center. Besides in E911 Dialling  service, your call back number and address are visible to the emergency response center call-taker. In Home Phone’s 911 Dialling  service, your call is sent to a national emergency call center. The call center operator will verify your location information and then transfer your 911 call to the emergency response center nearest your location. You should be ready to confirm your address and call-back number with the operator. Do not hang up unless told directly to do so and if disconnected, you should dial 911 again.

 

1. 2 Registration of Physical Location Required
It is your duty to ensure your location information, when signed up with Rangtel, is kept updated all times. In case you are not able to speak during the 911 call, the call taker would dispatch emergency response vehicles to your last registered address. You need to update your 911 Dialling  information if you move your device to a different place and/or if you include a new line to your account. Your 911 Dialling  service is activated when you subscribe to Rangtel Home Phone Service.
