Is the public safety community ready for new 911 location rules?
The Federal Communications Commission is proposing for the first time that cellular carriers begin delivering location information to 911 dispatchers on calls made from inside buildings. The proposed rules reflect the fact that cell phones now are a primary means of communication and are used for the majority of emergency calls. Current Enhanced 911 location requirements apply only to outdoor calls, but a growing number of calls are coming from inside buildings.
