ZVRS’s provision of Video Relay Services (VRS) is governed by the rules adopted by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) (47 C.F.R. 64.601 et. seq.) pursuant to the FCC’s authority under Section 225 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended, 47 U.S.C. 225. Under these rules, VRS Communication Assistants (CAs) must meet certain minimum standards in order to qualify as VRS interpreters. While all of ZVRS’s interpreters are qualified to provide VRS under the FCC’s rules, different credentialing and licensing requirements are imposed by each of the individual states with respect to the qualifications needed to provide legal interpreting, i.e., interpreting for depositions and other legal proceedings. Because ZVRS is centrally located in some states, it cannot guarantee that all of its interpreters meet all of the legal interpreting qualifications of every single state. No party shall have the right to rely on such VRS for any specialized interpreting service needs.
ZVRS is not liable for any error during the emergency call process, nor for any delay in the call process or availability of video interpreters. ZVRS is also not liable for any error in the transmission or interpretation of any information pertaining to the emergency, including but not limited to: location, identifying information such as names, nature of emergencies, or any other details shared during the call. Additionally, ZVRS is not liable for any delays or problems with emergency personnel’s arrival or services.
WARNING: Please be aware the due to inherent technical limitation of some VRS-based 911 calls, automatic transmission of your location information to 911 emergency call center may not occur. The resulting need to gather this information and convey it to emergency responders manually increases the amount of time for these calls, as well as the risk of error. In situation where you are unable to place 911 call via VRS, ZVRS recommends you to call 911 with a regular phone and then leave the phone off the hook. The appropriate emergency call center will recognize this and send assistance your way.
