The telephony industry has evolved over the years from traditional landlines to also include, VoIP, Wi-Fi, Cellular data service and a variety of other emerging technologies. These advancements create many challenges for 9-1-1 service; one of them being that at times a 9-1-1 call may be sent to the wrong PSAP. If the caller is located outside the PSAP’s normal area of dispatch, the issue is that the PSAP staff may not be necessarily aware of who the appropriate PSAP is, nor what their transfer number is. When in this situation, a PSAP operator may attempt to find the appropriate agency using www.google.com, www.411.com, www.NENA.org etc. or the Long Distance Operator. The problem is that all of these solutions can be very time consuming and may not provide an accurate answer; all the while a caller with an emergency is waiting.
We can help and if possible will route the call to the Primary Trunks. We accept up to five calls for assistance a month from an agency.

Unsolicited comments from 911 Dispatchers posted in various threads on https://www.reddit.com/
“I just came across a post about getting calls for outside of your area, and most of the comments just directed people to Google the agency you need to contact….don’t do it, there is a much easier way!! Just call the Northern 911 PSAP support line and provide them with the town/city or phone number for the area you are trying to reach, and the rest is magic! They are great to deal with, and will transfer you to the appropriate agency to handover your call. No lengthy googling and trial/error calls to admin lines that aren’t answered at 3am. Put that phone number in your speed dial, tell your supervisor/management and colleagues, and watch the worries of non-local calls melt away!”
“This is the most useful thing I have ever read in a dispatch group. Thank you!!”
“You’re welcome!!! I really wish it was more heavily advertised, it’s such a great service.”
“Y’all didn’t know about Northern? They’re MVPs for sure. Great customer service, polite, easy to work with 10/10 will transfer out of state calls to them again. Full disclosure they can’t help with international calls. Had a caller with an emergency on the Isle of Wight once. That was a doozie.”
“They answer incredibly quickly. I don’t think I’ve ever had any sort of waiting period.”
“This sounds AMAZING! Transfers can be soo time consuming and frustrating!”
“It’s a huge time saver. I’ve been drilling it into our staff ever since it got put into place.”
