    I am an EMT full time so I deal pretty closely with this as well. I believe that our county can use a cell phone to figure out an approximate location probably based off of cell towers used. I cannot remember what it's called though. I'm sure it's very crude though.

    I do agree that being able to text a dispatch center would be a great idea.
    I have a number of friends who are deaf (or sufficiently hearing-impaired that phone conversations are useless). Right now, the ONLY way they can reach 911 in an emergency, is text me (or some other hearing-able friend) who can call 911 for them.

    (for non-emergency calls they have VRS and other things, but that only works if you're at home and in front of the computer, etc)
