FCC Should Ensure That Help Will Arrive For 911 Calls

The FCC has proposed stronger rules for location accuracy when emergency calls are placed from a wireless device. Currently, a call from a mobile phone to 911 makes it much more difficult to locate the caller. In some cases as many as 9 out of 10 calls placed from cell phones cannot be accurately located. Passing these requirements could save as many as 10,000 lives per year.

Please sign our petition to the FCC here and tell them that help must come.
