Kari's Law went into effect February 16, 2020.

Kari's Law went into effect February 16, 2020.

Kari's Law goes into effect today. It's named after Kari Hunt, who was tragically murdered in her hotel room in 2013 after multiple failed attempts by her young daughter to dial 9-1-1 because she did not know she needed to dial an extra 9 to dial out. Medical examiners agree that had her daughter been able to reach emergency services, Kari would have survived the attack. The law is designed to ensure that anyone, anywhere can reach emergency services by dialing only 9-1-1 and that critical location data is provided with that call.
