“Kariâ€™s Law has received support from nearly 500,000 online signatures and would require that all who dial the three digits 911 would be connected to an emergency dispatcher regardless of the multi-line telephone system (MTLS). Right now, dialing 911 at an office building, school, or hotel MLTS may or may not get the caller they help they are seeking. As Hunt travels the country to speak about Kariâ€™s Law, he takes notice in each hotel room where he stays.”
One of the most well-known and obvious lessons taught to children and remembered through adulthood makes Hank Hunt feel angry, yet guilty.
â€œWe all teach our children to dial 911,â€ said Hunt about the three digits ingrained in everyoneâ€™s head in case of an emergency. But it took tragedy for Hunt to realize those three digits do not always work.
In December of 2013, Huntâ€™s daughter Kari Dunn was stabbed to death inside a Marshall, Texas hotel room. Her estranged husband is now charged with her murder. Dunnâ€™s 9-year-old daughter was inside the hotel room and dialed 911 four times.
Each time, the call failed.
