Can You Verify Your Address for E911?

According to, after updating your address in your provider's records, you can verify the information by dialing 911 and informing the operator that you do not have an emergency and are testing your 911 service. However, not all public safety answering points can accept enhanced 911 information.

If your public safety answering point does not accept enhanced 911 information, tell the operator your location and contact number. The FCC notes that customers using Voice over Internet Protocol services with E911 may not properly connect to public safety services and that service providers must provide information about the limitations of their 911 and E911 services.
