FCC Proposes Order to Improve Location Accuracy

The National Association of EMS Physician supports the Federal Communication Commission’s Draft Fifth Report and Order and the Draft Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking.  It is a critical step in enabling EMS and first responders to quickly and accurately locate 911 callers. Deploying z-axis technology would identify the floor level for wireless 911 calls made from multi-story buildings, thus decreasing response times to provide faster medical attention, ideally improving outcomes and saving lives.
