911 Dialing Customer Notice and Acknowledgement
THIS AGREEMENT IS A MATERIAL PART OF ANY AGREEMENT OR UNDERSTANDING BETWEEN MISSOURI RSA 5 PARTNERSHIP D/B/A CHARITON VALLEY WIRELESS SERVICES (“CHARITON VALLEY”) AND YOU AS THE CUSTOMER (“CUSTOMER”) FOR THE PROVISION OF WIRELESS VOICE SERVICES. IN UTILIZING SUCH SERVICES, CUSTOMER AGREES THAT IT FULLY UNDERSTANDS AND AGREES WITH THE LIMITATIONS AND DISCLAIMERS EXPLAINED BELOW.
Wireless 911 Calling: The 911 service provided utilizing Chariton Valley Home Phone (the “Service”) is different than traditional wireline 911 services. Carefully read this Notice explaining how 911 dialing using the Service are different from traditional 911 services. If you have any questions or concerns about the information contained in this Notice, or if you do not understand anything discussed in this Notice, please contact our Customer Care Representatives at 660-395-9000. With traditional wireline Enhanced 911 services (“E911”), when you dial 911, your telephone number and service address (your home or business address) is automatically sent to the local emergency answering center assigned to your location, and emergency operators have access to the information they need to send help and call you back if necessary.
Wireless 911 calling is different. In areas with Phase I E911 calling, your location is not automatically sent to the emergency answering center. You must be prepared to give the emergency operator your location. In areas with Phase II E911, the geographic coordinates of your location are automatically sent to the emergency answering center, but your service address (i.e., your street address) is not automatically sent. Specifically, the Service determines your location via a Global Positioning System (“GPS”) receiver built into the Chariton Valley base unit Axesstel TX240G (the “Unit”). When you call 911, the Unit sends the geographic coordinates of the Unit to the emergency answering center. You should be prepared, however, to give the emergency operator your street address and exact location (such as suite or apartment number).
- You Must Attach the GPS Antenna and Place the Unit Near a Window.The accuracy of GPS varies depending on a number of factors. A GPS receiver needs to “see” orbiting satellites in order to get an accurate location. In general, GPS does not obtain as accurate a location reading indoors as it does outdoors. Accordingly, in order for the Unit to provide as accurate coordinates as possible to the emergency answering center, you must attach the external GPS antenna supplied with the Unit and place the Unit and GPS antenna near a window or exterior wall. Failure to attach the GPS antenna, or to placing the Unit near a window or exterior wall, may result in no location, or an inaccurate location being sent to the emergency answering center during a 911 call. In this case, emergency services personnel may be sent to an incorrect location and/or may be unable to assist you in a timely manner or at all.
- Configuration and Activation Required.In order for 911 dialing to work, you must first configure and active the Unit and the Service. Instructions on how to do this are provided with the materials accompanying the Unit.
- Service Outages Due to Power Failure or Disruption.The Unit comes with a back-up battery, which will allow the Service to function during power failures of short duration. During a power failure for an extended period of time, however, 911 dialing services using the Service will not function.
