Calgary, Alberta, Canada wants to locate 911 cell phone calls. As it reads in this article, “The city is looking to make it easier to track cell phone calls made to 911.”
The article mentions putting up signs that callers can identify and read off to the emergency dispatcher to help locate the callers. There are quite a few locations in that town that have issues with 911 tracking where callers are located.
Even when 911 Dispatchers are able to locate you, the radius with which your location is determined can be over a mile. This happened in Memphis, Tennessee and can be observed in this short video. A 911 call was made about a crime and the coordinates were determined but the operators found the location to be out of their jurisdiction. When police arrived much later on the scene, the coordinates were a cell phone tower that was 1.3 miles away from where the body was located.
