When reviewing our ERP we found that calling 9-1-1 may not be as easy in a remote camp as it is when you are calling from a land line in town.
We contacted the 9-1-1 service directly and were told:
“We strongly recommend that you reach out to your satellite and internet phone providers to confirm their process for handling emergency calls.”
“The process for handling these types of calls can differ between companies with most using third party call centres as the first point of contact instead of having calls go directly through to local emergency services.”
