AS 29.35.134. Multi-Line Telephone Systems.

A municipality may by ordinance elect to require an enhanced 911 system from a multi-line telephone system. A multi-line telephone system operator must arrange to update the automatic location identification database with an appropriate master street address guide, valid address, and callback number for each multi-line telephone system telephone, so that the location information specifies the emergency response location of the caller. A multi-line telephone system operator is considered to be in compliance with this section when the multi-line telephone system complies with enhanced 911 generally accepted industry standards as defined by the Regulatory Commission of Alaska. For purposes of this section,

(1) "callback number" means a number used by the public safety answering point to re-contact the location from which a 911 call is placed; the number may or may not be the number of the station used to originate the 911 call;

(2) "emergency response location" means the location to which a 911 emergency response team may be dispatched that is specific enough to provide a reasonable opportunity for the emergency response team to quickly locate a caller anywhere within it;

(3) "master street address guide" means a database of formatted street names, numerical addresses or address ranges, and other parameters defining valid locations and emergency services zones, and their associated emergency services numbers, that enables the proper routing and response to 911 calls;

(4) "multi-line telephone system" means a system made up of common control units, telephone sets, and control hardware and software, including network and premises based systems such as Centrex and PBX, Hybrid, and Key Telephone Systems, as classified by the Federal Communications Commission under Part 68 Requirements, and including systems owned or leased by governmental agencies or nonprofit entities, as well as for profit entities;

(5) "multi-line telephone system operator" means an entity that owns, leases, or rents from a third party, and operates a multi-line telephone system through which a caller may place a 911 call through a public switched network.
