Kari's Law and Ray Baum Act

Contacting a 911 call center from a large facility like an office building, hotel, or university campus has not always been as simple as dialing 911. Such facilities typically have multi-line telephone systems (MLTS) which provide challenges in getting help from 911, such as:

 
  • 1. Securing an outside line, since MLTS often require callers to dial a number or code before connecting to an outside line, and
  • 2. Providing accurate information about the caller’s location within the building or complex

Two statutes being implemented by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) – Kari’s Law and RAY BAUM’S Act - will make it easier for callers to reach 911, and for emergency services to locate those callers.
