911 calls from Microsoft Teams

As the University transitions its telephone services to Microsoft Teams, it will also add additional 911 calling capabilities to enhance local emergency response. During this transition, however, there are some limitations to be aware of:

  • E911 services may be limited or unavailable during power outages, network outages or scheduled maintenance.
  • Additionally, your location information may not always be accurately reported to emergency authorities in some scenarios.

Due to these limitations, we recommend you use the following precautions with your Microsoft Teams phone service:

  • State your location and telephone number to emergency personnel during a 911 call if possible.
  • Have an alternate means of contacting 911 emergency services, such as a cell phone.
