EENA: Emergency number laws should be changed to offer precise data

The European Emergency Number Association (EENA) says that the laws concerning the “112” emergency number system should be changed in order for mobile phone operators to be compelled to offer information about the caller’s exact location, a stipulation that would probably have led to timely intervention in the Apuseni air crash case. Gary Machado, Executive Director of the EENA, has sent a letter through which he expresses support for the Romanian “112” emergency number system, pointing out that the legislation, not the system, is at fault for the air crash in the Apuseni Mountains. “We are asking the Romanian President, Prime Minister and every authority involved in the 112 services to publicly ask the European Commission to regulate mobile phone operators in order to offer precise and reliable data concerning the location of the caller,” Machado said, being quoted by Mediafax.
