"We started LaaSer to address some of the issues we saw in the existing 911 system," says Fred White, cofounder and CEO of LaaSer. "And now, by partnering with Comtech, we'll be able to expand LaaSer’s life saving technologies and enable entirely new ways to provide emergency services with accurate location and supplemental data."
The current 911 system was designed when landlines were the most common mode of communication, and the system hasn’t kept pace with the rapid pace of mobile innovation and adoption. The FCC is certainly aware of the issue and the toll it’s taking in lives. The agency estimates that improving the average emergency response time to mobile callers by just 60 seconds could save over 10,000 lives annually.
