Customer acknowledges that if it chooses the PSTN emergency call routing option, it is responsible for all ECRC call charges even if erroneous calls are placed by unknown persons or companies that happen to accidentally or purposely dial the Companies’ private emergency number assigned to it by Service Provider.
