6. Programming/testing of emergency numbers
If this product has memory dialing locations, you may choose to store police, fire
department and emergency medical service telephone numbers in these loca-
tions. If you do, please keep three things in mind:
a. We recommend that you also write the telephone number on the directory
card (if applicable), so that you can still dial the emergency number manually if
the memory dialing feature doesn’t work.
b. This feature is provided only as a convenience, and the manufacturer assumes
no responsibility for customer reliance upon the memory feature.
c. Testing the emergency telephone numbers you have stored is not recommended.
However, if you do make a call to an emergency number:
• You must remain on the line and briefly explain the reason for the call before
hanging up.
• Programming/testing of emergency numbers should be performed during
off-peak hours, such as in the early morning or late evening, when the
emergency services tend to be less busy.
