You Will Soon Be Able to Text 911 for Help

This is very good news.

In a move that brings emergency services into the 21st century, you'll soon be able to text 911 for urgent assistance.

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has issued a ruling that requires all cellular service providers to make texting 911 a possibility for its customers. The requirement will not only help save lives — especially in situations where a voice call might not be possible — it will also give those who are deaf, hard of hearing or have speech disabilities a better way to get immediate assistance.

Wow now that is very interesting and a decent idea. I was robbed in my own home last year (Right before Christmas) I hid my phone as they had a gun to the back of my head and being able to text would have been amazing and could have gotten the Police there sooner.
