In an effort to increase the ability of emergency personnel to respond to wireless 911 calls, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has new rules requiring wireless telephone carriers to provide Enhanced 911. Wireless carriers have begun to use technologies to meet the FCC’s E911 rules. When fully implemented, wireless E911 will provide the location of consumers dialing 911 from mobile phones.
To take advantage of the future implementation of Phase II E-911 automatic location capabilities, you must have a digital wireless phone. If, during an emergency, you are unable to give your location to the PSAPs (911 centers), that information will be sent automatically from a digital wireless phone. Therefore, it is recommended that you procure a digital wireless phone as soon as possible.
