Our platform allows a user to have different outbound CallerID numbers and 911 numbers. This simplifies the 911 process and minimizes costs by limiting 911 listings to the number needed.
The address on file with the 911 listings can be verified and changed by any account with the Office Manager role or higher.
Using 933 to Verify Emergency Address
When calling emergency services, address information is sent that is tied to the phone number that shows in the caller ID. This ensures first responders and emergency crews can quickly get to people in need. It is imperative that the address on file is correct for this reason.
To verify what address is tied to your outpulsed caller ID number, you can call 933 from any phone and reach an automated verification service. This service will confirm your outpulsed emergency caller ID number and address, and confirm that your 911 service is active.
Do NOT call 911 to test!

Clicking on either the number or the Edit (pencil) icon on the right will allow you to view and change the address listed with 911.
