Tapping Cellular Phones
Emergency services from wireless vendors to non-profit
groups are increasingly tapping into technology to
build alert systems and location-based platforms.
In one example, the Center for Missing and Exploited
Children this week launched a program to highlight
an emergency service allowing cellular subscribers
to sign up online to receive text messages on any
cell phone. The organization teamed up with carriers
and other groups last year to design the Wireless
AMBER Alerts system.
Hebrew SeniorLife, a long-term care facility for
the elderly in Boston, is putting technology in the
hands of field nurses to give them an edge as they
drum up patient referrals from hospitals.
Hebrew SeniorLife has a corps of five nurses who
serve as ‘‘clinical liaisons’’ in hospitals.
Their job is to find and evaluate seriously ill patients
who are about to be discharged from the hospital and
win a referral to Hebrew SeniorLife for the next stage
of their healthcare.

often neglect sparsely populated pockets, leaving
them without any cellphone service.

to investigate the NSA

with the National Security Agency to wiretap domestic
phone calls and Internet communications.
In a letter to Rep. Edward J. Markey dated Monday,
the chairman of the Federal Communications Commission
stated that any investigation of the National Security
Agency's alleged domestic wiretapping program would

Industry Association (CTIA), made his plea to the
Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee.
He told the committee that a single regulatory framework
should replace the current situation in which both
state public utility commissions and federal agencies
such as the Federal Communications Commission control
