When dialing 911, providing first responders with accurate location information is essential. In situations where the caller is unable to verbally give a location, it can mean the difference between life and death. If the call is placed indoors from a wireless phone or where GPS signals are compromised, the location information may be unreliable or inaccurate.
Existing technologies can provide first responders with accurate indoor location information.
It is time for the FCC to establish a reasonable, measurable level of location accuracy for emergency calls made indoors, enabling first responders to locate emergency calls from wireless phones from all locations rapidly and efficiently.Lives are at risk today.
A wide range of emergency responders, 911 dispatchers and others interested in helping first responders find people facing emergencies have joined together to form the Find Me 911 Coalition, determined to ensure that 911 works in today’s wireless age.
