“Today’s 911 system [launched in 1968] doesn’t support the communication tools of tomorrow,” FCC chairman Julius Genachowski said in a statement. “We primarily use our phones to text, [but] right now, you can’t text 911. It’s time [for] the digital age.”
The proposed “Next Generation 911″ would allow emergency call centers to receive text messages and use mobile photo or video for information about the situation in progress.
The FCC also wants to introduce automatic reports coming from medical devices, car electronics, security cameras and more.
