Verizon FiOS - is BGP an option?

My apologies, I think we crossed wires here.  This thread included a
discussion of continual residential Internet access in an extended power
outage.  That's the topic I was responding to, not E911.

911 access isn't a critical service?  Fire and security panels aren't
critical services?

If basic life safety and property protection aren't critical services, I'm
not sure what is.  These are peoples' lives and families and homes.  There
is nothing - repeat, nothing - more important than that.  It is absolutely a
critical service.
