That's pretty close to accurate Matt. When we first started working on Kari's Law, the main priority was to remove the necessity of dialing any trunk access code in order to get to 911. That all started due to the death of Kari Hunt in Texas when she was being stabbed by her soon to be ex husband and Kari's 9 year old daughter was trying to dial 911 from the hotel phone and did not know she needed to dial 9 first to get out. She tried 4 times and finally grabbed her siblings and ran for help.
The onsite notification piece was written so that if someone in a hotel dialed 911, the call would go directly to 911, but alert the front desk that "hey, room 301 just dialed 911" type of events. A lot of hotels used to tell people to dial something internally instead of dialing 911 and that call would go to theo hotel operator or the front desk instead of 911. Problem was, smaller hotels, middle of the night, one guy working the front desk and steps away from the desk. This requirement obviously extended to any MLTS system to provide on site notification. And the third point of the law was basically to avoid that similar front desk experience. If someone dials 911, the calls should go to a fully trained and certified 911 call handler, not the dude at the front desk. My company spent quite a bit of time working on and promoting Kari's law. The Hunt family are now very dear personal friends of ours. Since we are on this topic of 911, if anyone would like to have a discussion with me on what some of the other vendors are trying to get into law that would end up costing every customer out there TONS of money to support, please reach out to me. I think it is important that everyone understand what some of these guys are trying to do that is only going to end up costing the customers a TON of money to implement.
