i911 Coast Guard Cellphone Emergency Service

The Coast Guard will be able to use your cell phone to find you if you have an emergency. They will ask for your cell number and then send a text message authorizing them to use your phone’s GPS to find you. Your location, using the phone’s GPS information, will be displayed on a screen used by Coast Guard watchstanders. Details: https://bit.ly/PGSC-USCG-i911
