Automatic Location Identification (ALI) Database

An ALI Database is a secure database that contains the exact 9-1-1 address for given associated phone numbers. ALI stands for automatic location identification. This database is queried by the PSAP at the time of a 9-1-1 call to obtain the caller’s location. For example, if a caller dials 9-1-1, then the ALI Database will be able to provide first responders with a location instantly in order to cut down on response time. By allowing phone numbers to be in the ALI Database, emergency situations are allowed to be addressed faster and with more accuracy.
