Calling and texting 911: Grand Forks, other counties starting new emergency ...

And texting is simply not as efficient in an emergency as talking on the phone, according to the FCC.
Jonathan Holly's insight:

This process has been incredibly slow. And really there's at this point the 4 majors are going to implement. That means everyone else who sends a text to 911 will get nothing back. So, it kinda sets the system up for liability issues and major gaps.  Also, the vendors who got in on this are making out like bandits. Charging the contact centers 3,000 a month is insane.
