 Multi-line Telephone Systems and Accessing 9-1-1 Service: Requests for Comments on Commission “Strawman” Rule

The Commission proposes for comment a strawman rule to ensure that the public can reach emergency assistance without having to first dial or input an access code or number before dialing the digits 9, 1, and 1 in order to reach a public safety answering point. Comments on the strawman rule will be useful in staff’s developing of a 9-1-1 access rule that the Commission will be asked to consider for publication and official comment at its March 2015 open meeting.

Please see the Commission’s Rulemaking page for details and to submit comments
