+ - VoIP phone blamed in Calgary, Ab tragedy->

Submitted by

bulliver writes "An 18-month-old child has died because the ambulance dispatched to save him was sent to a stale address halfway accross the country. After the 911 call was cut short the dispatcher directed paramedics to a previous Mississauga address that was linked to the Calgary family's VoIP phone. VoIP provider Comwave spokeswoman Alison George says:

Because your phone service is not linked to a geographic address, it really is critically important when speaking to 911 that your address is fully delivered and fully understood and you're transferred to the EMS service provider in your area.


You should also make damn sure they have your current address. There is aditional coverage from CTV , The National Post, and Canada.com"
