Call the emergency services

Important: Emergency calling is available only for Voice for G Suite accounts managed by your work or school.

You can get help in an emergency by calling your local emergency services number from Google Voice. Emergency calls placed via Google Voice will have limitations compared to calls placed via traditional landline or mobile services. Review the information below to learn how emergency calling works in Google Voice. For a complete description of Google Voice emergency calling, visit our service terms.

If you’re a Google Voice administrator, make sure that your users are familiar with this information.

In the event of a power outage, loss of your Internet connection or a Google Voice service outage, emergency calling won't be available on Google Voice. Use an alternative phone service to dial the emergency services instead. Any phone, including mobile phones without an account or service plan, can call the emergency services and be connected to emergency responders.

For your convenience, we've provided an emergency call warning label you can download, print and place on or near your phone as a reminder that your phone service may be limited or unavailable during a loss of broadband connection.
