TRS is a free service, available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, that enables people who have difficulty speaking or hearing to use a standard voice telephone. Callers can contact a TRS by dialing 711 from anywhere in the United States. All Wave phone service supports 711 dialing to access a TRS. The TRS service calls are facilitated by a communications assistant (CA) who serves as the “link” in the conversation between Wave and the customer. All conversations occurring with the assistance of a CA are confidential and cannot be disclosed by the CA. In an emergency the caller should still call 911 for the fastest response of emergency personnel.
