Currently around north america, 911 stations are underfunded and understaffed. Their technology is not the greatest and because we use wireless phones they have a difficult time tracking us. As they can mostly get the address of the closest tower.
Telus and other companies should get together and develop a system to help with saving lives.
1. When a 911 call is made the phone should forcefully turn on GPS location. And enable 911 responders to locate you even if you don't know where you are
2. The camera should turn on start to broadcast the events to the 911 team.
We get charged for emergency services on our bills, make sure the funding is rightfully going to them and not to general funds.
This could improve Telus image as a family friendly provider, help save lives and put the smart phones to smart usage.
If Telus wants to sit and discuss this vision you may email me.
Think of your own family and friends that could benefit from this. We can build a proposal for the government to get funding for a setup like this.
