Industry 911 Dial-Through Update

American Hotel & Lodging Association
Issue Background
As a result of the Kari's Law petition, the U.S. lodging industry has convened a task force of more than 50 lodging executives with expertise in telecommunications and security. The industry views the safety and security of guests and employees as a top priority, and is working closely with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), as well as Congress and other interested stakeholders. AH&LA has developed an industry recommendation and is creating resources to encourage and assist properties in ensuring direct 911 dialing procedures.
