Satellite Telephones

Testing may be done on your own by calling any cellular or land line, or by calling EMS at 925-646-4690 and requesting a return call to your satellite telephone. As of Mar 2013, there intermittent gaps in satellite coverage where satellite telephone communications would not be possible for periods of time. Efforts are currently underway to eliminate these gaps by Summer 2013. Use this link to see when optimal communication times are present.
