Nearly all Americans today are using cell phones, with a growing number of U.S. households relying solely on mobile devices for communication. Yet most citizens do not realize that existing 9-1-1 emergency systems do not handle mobile data accurately—location data from mobile phones can be inexact and text messages may not even reach traditional 9-1-1 call centers.
