A custom emergency number is a phone number that triggers emergency service call notifications. These custom numbers can be helpful if you have different protocol for emergencies—perhaps you have onsite security or medical personnel that’s called for smaller emergencies. It’s a good idea to add these numbers as a speed dial options on every device in your organization for easier access in case of an emergency.

Tip: To trigger emergency service call notifications when an internal extension is dialed, route the desired line extension to the custom emergency number as the only ring step in the line’s dial plan (Find Me/Follow Me).
