Automatic location identification (ALI)

An automatic location identification (ALI) is an enhanced electronic location system that automatically relays a caller’s address when they call an emergency responder service such as 911, whether they call from a mobile phone or a landline. Telephone companies have subscriber databases that a consumer’s phone number with a primary home address, but more recent technology such as ALI makes it easier for emergency responders such as the fire departments, law enforcement and paramedics to locate the caller’s exact address in a more timely fashion. In fact, responders can locate someone who dials 911 even if they don’t say a word.
