Ohio story shows why e911 is important

The man’s phone was through Cricket wireless, so they were immediately blamed for the incident. Sheriff’s deputies tested 911 calls throughout the county and came across the same problem throughout. A subsequent report noted that Cricket is in the process of fixing the problem, which they note was isolated. This story perfectly displays why e911 services are so important. We’ve been programmed since a young age to call 911 for emergencies, and the victim did just that. Only with full e911 compliance can we ensure that calls get routed to the proper centers, and that first responders get the information they need.]]>
