Why can’t I just call 911 with a standard Alexa device?

Due to regulations, Alexa can’t call 911. Plus, with a standard 911 call, it may take up to 60 seconds to be connected with an operator. During times of distress, time is crucial. With Companion 24/7, urgent response agents will confirm the emergency and be able to relay vital, personal information to the paramedics including your location.
