In a May 7, 2014 article, CNBC quoted Venable partner and retired Navy Rear Admiral Jamie Barnett on the dangers posed by 911 dispatchers struggling to locate callers dialing from cell phones, especially when calling from indoors.

“It's a public safety hazard that is largely unrecognized,” said Admiral Barnett. “People’s lives are at risk right now because they cannot count on 911 being able to find them when they call from a cell phone.”
