How 911 Works

Technology Behind A 911 call

When you make an emergency call to 9-1-1, you are connected to an emergency dispatch that immediately knows your exact location, and can assign the appropriate emergency resource for your exact need. While you may be flustered, disgruntled, or discomposed from your emergency, the technology behind enhanced 9-1-1 calls work in your favor to provide valuable information to the emergency dispatch also known as the Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP). While other 3rd party emergency alert systems such as 5Star Urgent Response, also alert the emergency dispatch, the technology behind enhanced 9-1-1 is truly remarkable and in many cases can save you from disaster.
