E911

In compliance with Kari’s Law and Ray Baum’s Act, the Office of Telecommunications uses E911.  When users from the university dial 911 from their assigned desktop phones, the call not only reaches the City of Chicago 911 Center, but a notification is also sent to the University Police.  The information sent is the name of the person to whom the extension is assigned, the full telephone number of the extension, and the nearest location (building & office).  This will allow the University Police to escort City of Chicago emergency personnel to the exact location of the emergency.
