SAVER Project: Wireless Call Location Services

Unlike traditional landlines, there is no fixed location associated with a wireless phone number. Wireless call location services route wireless calls to the nearest Public Safety Answering Point, allowing operators to direct responders to incidents quickly.

Find this project in the FEMA Authorized Equipment List and InterAgency Board Interactive Standardized Equipment List.
