Forced Disconnect

From NENA Knowledge Base

Forced Disconnect is an inherent capability of E9-1-1 service that prevents a calling station which remains off-hook from indefinitely holding the connection to a PSAP. It allows a PSAP attendant to release a 9-1-1 call connection even though the calling party has not hung up, thereby preventing a tie-up of dedicated 9-1-1 facilities.
