The Ray Baum Act requires companies to ensure precise location information accompanies every 911 call if made through the company’s phone system. With the surge in work from home due to COVID, compliance is increasingly difficult without a service such as 9Line.
9Line collects and inserts granular location information on behalf of the company, ensuring compliance with the federal regulations. This information includes details such as office number, floor number, or other descriptive text to assist first responders in identifying where the caller is located.
Kari’s Law took effect in February 2020 and requires business phone systems to allow anyone to call 911 without added prefixes such as “9” for outside lines. The law requires mandatory notifications to company staff when 911 is called and requires a valid callback number that a 911 dispatcher can use to reach the caller in case of disconnect.
