Teams Telephony and 911 Calls

This article will provide notice and instructions for 911 calling with Microsoft Teams.

Dialing 911

  • When making an emergency call, open your dial pad and dial 911.
  • This will connect you to an emergency dispatcher.
As our campus moves toward Teams Calling as our central phone service, please be mindful of two considerations about 911 calls made from Teams:
  • If you wish to make a 911 call through Teams, make certain that the device from which you intend to make your Teams call is:  
    • powered on 
    • connected to the Internet.
  • If you make a 911 call through Teams, make certain to report immediately your current location to the dispatcher.   The 911 dispatcher may not know a given caller's exact location since Teams calls may be made from multiple devices (including a home computer, workplace computer, personal cell phone, iPad) and multiple locations.
