Jamie Barnett quoted on on FCC’s search for policy solution to 911 wireless location tracking

1 min quoted Venable partner and retired Navy Rear Admiral Jamie Barnett in a May 9, 2014 article on the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) search for a policy solution to emergency responders’ inability to track the location of wireless 911 calls due to insufficient technology. Admiral Barnett heads the Find Me 911 Coalition which surveyed public safety professionals and found that 911 wireless indoor location tracking ranked at the top of their list of greatest challenges.

Admiral Barnett said the survey is making a difference in the proceedings as the FCC relies on first responders to help them understand the issues and create solutions.
