- EMERGENCY SERVICES- 911 DIALING Futra Solutions 911 and E911 Service Overview. Futra Solutions provides all of its two-way phone service subscribers with basic 911 (which refers to the ability to connect a 911 call to a public safety answering point or “PSAP”) and provides enhanced 911 or “E911” (which refers to the additional ability to provide the PSAP with the caller’s telephone number and location) where available. Customers utilizing one-way calling services or over-the-top (OTT) application only, including MAC or PC softphones and mobile applications available on iOS and Andriod, do NOT have direct access to E911 service. If you opt for one-way calling services or OTT application service from Futra Solutions and require E911 service, you must make special arrangements with us, and execute an additional E911 service agreement. IN THE EVENT OF AN EMERGENCY WHILE USING ONE-WAY CALLING SERVICES OR OTT APPLICATION ON YOUR WIRELESS PHONE, HANG UP AND DIAL YOUR LOCAL EMERGENCY NUMBER. YOU MUST UTILIZE THE TELEPHONE SERVICE PROVIDED BY YOUR LOCAL OR WIRELESS CARRIER TO MAKE AN EMERGENCY CALL
With E911 service, your registered address and phone number is automatically delivered to the proper local emergency call center. This information appears on the emergency dispatcher’s computer screen. If you live in an area where E911 has not yet been deployed, your call will be routed to an emergency call center through the traditional 911 network based on the information on record, however the dispatcher will not have your address and may not have your phone number. In order to provide 911 and E911 service, Futra Solutions must know the physical location of the Futra Solutions analog telephone adapter or the physical telephone instrument provided to you in connection with activation of the Service (the “device”). You will be prompted to provide this information during sign-up. If this address is not accurate OR IF YOU MOVE YOUR DEVICE TO ANOTHER LOCATION, EVEN TEMPORARILY, you must call customer service at 941-254-6900 to update the physical location of your DEVICE. IF THE PHYSICAL LOCATION OF YOUR DEVICE IS NOT ACCURATELY ON RECORD, EMERGENCY SERVICES WILL NOT BE ABLE TO LOCATE YOU IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO SPEAK YOUR ADDRESS OR ARE DISCONNECTED (EVEN IN AREAS WHERE E911 SERVICE IS AVAILABLE) DURING A 911 CALL AND/OR THE CALL MAY BE MISDIRECTED TO AN INCORRECT LOCAL EMERGENCY SERVICE PROVIDER. Per Federal Communications Commission requirements, customers utilizing the two-way communications service ARE NOT permitted to “opt out” of 911 service. If you are using an OTT application, you must request 911 service be added. IF YOU HAVE NOT AGREED TO THE FUTRA SOLUTIONS E911 SERVICE AGREEMENT, DO NOT ATTEMPT TO CONTACT EMERGENCY SERVICES OVER ONE-WAY CALLING SERVICES OR VIA THE OTT APPLICATION. HANG UP AND DIAL 911 VIA YOUR UNDERLYING TELEPHONE SERVICE OR WIRELESS SERVICE.
