9. You don't actually have to have your own line for that.

The phone companies are required to provide 911 service to any phone line, whether or not it has phone service. So even if you cancel your land line, it will still have a dial tone and 911 will still work (so will 611, since the phone companies decided they might as well make it easy to sign up for phone service if the phone line has to stay connected).

They'll still know where the phone is, since that's identified to them using a different system than phone number.
