9-1-1 Call: VoIP Call to Wrong State
April 2013, Stafford County, VA: A man calls 9-1-1 using a VoIP (Internet) phone, and the call is received at the Doña Ana County, New Mexico, 9-1-1 Call Center! Part way through this recording, you can hear the man talking to the 9-1-1 Call Center for Stafford County, on a separate call to 9-1-1 made by cell phone.
When VoIP phone service was first developed, this was a common problem as Internet phone service, and the network connections on the Internet, are not mapped to specific locations. The FCC now requires that VoIP phone service providers supply a means for their customers to register their physical address for purposes of 9-1-1 and Emergency Response. This allows the VoIP provider to know which 9-1-1 Call Center can dispatch First Responders to your location, and which should receive any call you make to 9-1-1. It also allows the 9-1-1 Call Center to know where to send First Responders. However, you must make sure that you keep your “9-1-1 Address” current with your service provider.
