The 911 office is most likely retreiving the address off of the line that is
placing the call. Do you have any voice lines in the other buildings?

I would consider a line siege device and FXO attached to a fax or security
system line in the other buildings. Route the dialed 911's out over the
local pots line and they will get the correct address. I don't know if you
can attach an address any other way.

You could try sending a different callerid, but if they are all billed as
being in the main building, that's probably the address they'll get.

Your eyes are weary from staring at the CRT. You feel sleepy. Notice how
restful it is to watch the cursor blink. Close your eyes. The opinions
