Are You in Compliance with Kari’s Law for Emergency Calling?
September 30, 2019
Kari’s Law requires multi-line telephone systems (like those found on campuses, hotels, or office buildings) to enable users to dial 911 directly, without having to dial a prefix to reach an outside line.
Congressional Bill H.R. 582 of 2017, better known as Kari’s Law, became a legal requirement on February 16, 2018. The Act was a response to the murder of Kari Hunt by her estranged husband in December 2013 while she and her daughter Brianna were at a Texas hotel.
