The article discusses the progress that has been made regarding the advancement of public safety's communication needs. One area that needs improvement is the 911 system because some countries in the United States cannot locate 911 calls from their mobiles. The latest technologies can automatically allow car to dial 911 and give information to officials once airbags are deployed. Safety officials should first upgrade their 911 answering call facilities so that this feature will be possible.
