  • Landline vs. Cellular >

    Cell phones are used by people of all ages as their connection to who they call. In most scenarios, that may be all you need. But the question we have for our customer is this, if you needed to call 911 in an emergency situation, how reliable is a cell phone? By calling 911 on a cell phone, you have to tell the 911 dispatcher who you are, where you are at and what the situation is. If the person calling is a young child or someone who needs help and not able to ask for the help, will the emergency people get the correct location of where the caller is at? In tests, cellular phones have identified the location to be blocks away from the true emergency location. In the situation of life or death, a few blocks away could be the difference. When calling 911 on your landline phone, the sheriff’s office has the name and location of the call even if the person is not able to say anything. A child could call if their siblings, parents or another adult needs help. And, the cost of having that landline phone, along with our internet service, comes out to 35 cents per day. Is saving 35 cents a day really worth risking your family’s life in an emergency situation?
