i911 is a free service by Callyo providing fast, accurate location of emergency callers. This new solution builds upon Callyo’s history of applying its engineering and law enforcement expertise to creating life-saving solutions for the community.
The FCC estimates that improving location accuracy could save as many as 10,000 lives per year. Approximately 80 percent of 911 calls today come from mobile devices, but outdated infrastructure often makes it difficult for 911 centers to quickly and accurately obtain a mobile caller’s location. However, new technology advancements have become recently available that can close the location gap, and do so quickly. In fitting with Callyo’s mission to Connect & Serve, our team is contributing to this important cause by making the i911 solution available to the more than 10,000 agencies in our network, and to all those agencies we haven’t met yet.
