911 From a Cell Phone vs a Land Line

A good read to remind us to try and be calm and give accurate information to 911 when calling...ESPECIALLY from a cell phone.

"Understand that when you dial 911 from a cellular phone, we are not given an address of where you're calling from, we are not given an exact location," Zarazinski said.

Kate Maffei, a shooting victim dealt with this scenario when calling 911 from her cell phone at her home: She frantically called 911 on her cell phone, and then waited an agonizingly long time, more than 10 minutes, for help to arrive.

It is funny to me how much people don't want big brother to have a lock on them, but then they are confused as to why big brother doesn't have a lock on them...either way, 911 is clearly not big brother.

Always assume the 911 operator knows NOTHING when you call.
