A 911 Text?
April 7, 2011

I am working on a story for tonight at 10 o’clock about the federal government’s push to create Next Generation 911, or NG911. This would allow people across the country to send a text message to 911. I know sending a text sounds easy, but when it comes to texting 911 the technical hurdles are piling up. I’ll explain more when I finish the story, but for now I would like to know whether you would like to have the option of sending a text message to 911. Take a second to answer my poll and leave me message with your thoughts. I’ll announce the results and some of your comments tonight at 10 o’clock.
