Enhanced 911 (E911)
Flowroute employs an Enhanced 911 integration which is an enhanced version of the 911 system used in the United States for calls seeking emergency assistance such as police, fire, and ambulance services. Calls to 911 are routed to a Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) – E911 identifies the location of the caller and routes the call to the appropriate local PSAP, and provides the PSAP with location information in order to speed up the response.
The data supplied to the PSAP must be in a specific format and must be verified prior to assignment to a TN. To this end, if you supply your address to the E911 service, it may require adjustment and formatting changes to match the required format of the PSAP. If this happens, your request will return an error and will specifiy the required format changes.
