    • Enhanced 9-1-1, a standard feature of Digital Home Phone, automatically transmits your address and telephone number to emergency services operators whenever you dial 9-1-1.

    • With regular 9-1-1, you have to clearly tell the dispatcher your location, which is not always possible and takes valuable time. Also, if for some reason your call is disconnected before you’ve finished relaying your information, emergency services will not know where you are located.

    Please select your exact location from the pull-down menu.
