As a CPR and First Aid insructor, I have been waiting for this technological update for quite some time. I can think of so many instances when someone may be able to text 911 instead af calling! A great example is if you are choking and are unable, to cough, speak or breath! If you are not near a land line to call 911, what better way to get some help coming your way? I will be happy to know that at least one person can be saved/helped with this new developement. That one life will be worth all the money spent on this new way of reaching a 911 operator.
