Can I dial "911" on an Iridium satellite phone?
Yes. 911 Emergency Service is available in the United States, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands by dialing "911" and pressing "OK"or the green soft key. When the call is made, it is automatically routed to Iridiums selected 911 emergency call center provider, Intrado. After determining the nature of the emergency, Intrado will route the call to the nearest Public Safety Answering Point. 911 service is not available in Canada.
Does Iridium have contingency plans in the event of blackouts and emergencies?
Iridium has backup electrical power and communication connectivity for both gateway and command and control functions to continue to offer services over the Iridium network in emergency situations. Iridium will support satellite-to-satellite connections without interruption. While most elements of the public switched telephone network (PSTN) should be immune, these are external elements outside of Iridium's control and therefore cannot assure PSTN connectivity in such situations.
