Cabin Security

A phone at the cabin is your reliable connection and lifeline in emergencies.  With visitors at your location, who often don’t know your address getting there fast in emergencies is critical.  Just call from your phone provided by Crosslake Communications to automatically transmit address information in an emergency call to 911.  When seconds make the life or death difference, make sure your cabin phone is connected.
