Cell Phone Safety
Primus would like to encourage all of our Wireless customers to know their Provincial laws regarding the use of cell phones while driving. Please consider the following safety precautions:
1. Do not dial your phone when you are driving. Wait until you have stopped
or pull over to the side of the road.
2. Never take notes while driving.
3. Consider having/installing a hands-free headset or speakerphone in your
car so you can keep both hands on the wheel.
4. In dangerous driving conditions, consider letting Primus Wireless Voice Mail
service take a message for you. You can always retrieve the message at a
more convenient time.
What is E911? Enhanced 911 (E911) is a new computer-aided system that will allow operators to respond more quickly and accurately when you call for help.
Phase One E911 provides emergency operators with your phone number to call you back in case the connection is lost and the area where you’re located via the wireless network antenna receiving your call. You must still provide your exact location.
Any customer registered on the Primus Wireless network in an area served by E911 will have access to E911 service. This includes Primus customers in their local area and Primus customers visiting another area in Canada.
In the future, Phase Two E911 will provide operators with even more precise information about your location in an emergency. These improvements will help emergency teams assist you better when every second counts.
Here are a few facts and things to bear in mind about 911 service with Primus Wireless.
How to report an emergency1. Immediately tell the operator that you’re calling from a wireless phone and
provide your 10-digit phone number. At all times, stay calm and speak
2. Give the details of the emergency.
3. Remain on the line and follow all instructions provided by the emergency
4. After the emergency operator ends the call, leave your wireless handset
turned on in case the operator needs to call you back.
Do not program 911 into the speed-dial feature of your Primus phone as it may result in accidental calls placed to 911.
