911 to Get MMS
How horrible it is to be a 911 operator? You have to answer calls from screaming/injured/angry/crazy/dying people all day. Their job is about to get worse, as soon they'll be able to receive texts, photos, and video of that misery. Gizmodo reports.
The FCC just announced a plan to catch 9-1-1 emergency services up with current technology. Call NG911, they FCC is aiming for standardization across U.S. emergency networks which are not control by any one governing body. With this update, we will now be able to send text, photos, and videos to 9-1-1.
