Requires the Federal Communications Commission to prescribe regulations: (1) establishing the telephone number 911 as the number for emergency telephone calls made anywhere in the United States, (2) requiring every telephone company to establish a system for connecting any emergency telephone call made using such number to an appropriate agency, and (3) defining the term 'emergency telephone call'.
