HALF MOON BAY, Calif. — Cell phone users on the coast should feel a little more secure in the knowledge that new equipment will soon enable the county’s emergency center to receive 911 calls via wireless phones.
Previously, these calls were sent to the California Highway Patrol’s regional dispatch center in Vallejo, where a dispatcher would have to determine the location of the caller and find the nearest public safety answering point for the caller.
