911 Centers Outdated Technology Can’t Always Locate Callers – Ending in Death

We have a real infrastructure vulnerability that many of us are not aware of… It’s a common belief that a 911 emergency call is infallible but now we find out, it is anything but, when your life depends upon it. A 911 cell phone call can’t always identify your location when minutes matter. How very cruel for a victim (and their loved ones) to hope there will be a rescue and then suffer the unbearable moments waiting, before they die. I have a friend whose niece experienced this and lost her life. When it hits your own existence, it becomes a grievous reality and not just something, that happens to other people. What a reprehensible failure for our democracy, a warning message should have been blasting its way across media outlets that you can’t always trust your 911 mobile calls; perhaps if victims had known this; they would have exhausted other means to save themselves.
