  • “Summary: The Federal Communications Commission (FCC or Commission) amends its rules to require wireless Enhanced 911 (E911) Phase II location accuracy and reliability standards at a geographical level defined by the coverage area of a Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP). Phase I required the wireless carrier to provide the 911 service with the cell phone caller’s phone number and cell tower that first processed the 911 call. The information required in Phase II is the cell phone number, and the physical location, within a few dozen yards, from which the call was made.”
