9-1-1 and Search & Rescue

IStockPhoto.com QuickFind Numbers can help first responders coordinate rescue efforts.

When calling 9-1-1 for emergency assistance, there are two questions the operator asks immediately.

  • First: “What is your emergency” so the operator knows whether to send fire, police, or an ambulance.
  • Second: “Where are you?”  This question is so important because the 9-1-1 operator needs to confirm your location.

All too often there is a disconnect between current 9-1-1 location capability and the distressed caller.   The United States’  9-1-1 system was created 40 years ago when homes had a land line and mobile phones were only a dream.  Today 70% of all 9-1-1 calls originate from a mobile phone which makes location identification a challenge.  Statistically 30% of those mobile phone calls are never quickly located.
