Ensuring 911 Compliance
What is Kari’s Law
Kari’s Law amends the original Telecommunications Act of 1934 as well as its 1996 overhaul. The law and FCC rules to enact both Kari’s Law and the RAY BAUM’S Act mandate that Enhanced 911 (E911) accessibility and notification be part of every aspect of a telephone system. Kari’s Law ensures that every person can easily call for help and be more easily located by emergency services.
Kari’s Law was created after Kari Hunt was stabbed 21 times by her estranged husband on December 1, 2013, in a Texas
motel bathroom while her three children were on the other side of the door. Her daughter tried four times unsuccessfully to dial 911, unaware that the hotel telephone system required dialing an additional access digit, “9,” to reach an outside line.
After public outcries over Hunt’s death, and the tireless efforts of Hunt’s father, Congress took action and enacted Kari’s Law in 2018 Soon after, the FCC began its notice of the proposed rulemaking process.
