When you first create your Dialpad account, you’ll be asked to confirm your E911 address. This ensures emergency response teams can locate you in case you call for urgent assistance.
The Dialpad Administrator will be asked to enter an E911 location at signup. When team members first access their Dialpad account, they too will be asked to confirm their E911 location.
Edit your E911 Location
Dialpad Administrators can edit the E911 location of their Office, while individual team members can edit their personal E911 location.
Dialpad Administrators can navigate to Dialpad.com> Admin Settings > Office > Office Settings > Registered Location for 911 Calls.
When making a 911 call, immediately tell the emergency operator the location of the emergency and a call back number in case your call gets disconnected.
E911 service is required by the federal government, so your monthly invoice will include this charge (see Taxes and Fees).
Team members can navigate to Dialpad.com > Your Settings > For Your Safety
Administrators will receive email notifications when their Offices change their E911 location. The default settings are:
- Company Administrators: Notified for every office
- Regional Administrators: Notified for their regional office(s)
- Office Administrators: Notified for their specific office
