Fatal Flaw: Why 911 centers are behind on tracking cell phone users

911 Call Centers Behind on GPS Tracking

If you call 911 from a cell phone, there's a chance help may not be able to find you.

Hamilton County's Executive Director for Emergency Communications John Stuermer says less than half of calls made from a cell phone actually give your location.

"People should be concerned and we in the industry are very frustrated," Stuermer said.

When cell phones became popular in the 1990's Stuermer says it made finding people difficult.
