Caller ID modification hierarchy for emergency calls

When you place an emergency call, the hierarchy for caller ID modification changes to alert emergency services about the correct location of the caller.

The following table displays the caller ID modification options available on emergency calls from the highest priority (1) to the lowest (8).

For example, if you configure the caller ID settings using the Extension emergency caller ID (priority 1) and the Extension external caller ID (priority 3), the FortiVoice unit displays the caller ID configured using the Extension emergency caller ID because this setting has a higher priority.
