Navajo Nation Improves 911 Service

Navajo Nation President Ben Shelly has signed an executive order aimed at improving 911 service and emergency communications across the sprawling reservation, which covers parts of Arizona, Utah and New Mexico.  The order calls for collaboration between tribal departments and private communication providers.  Shelly says no one should have to worry about their call going unanswered. 

According to tribal statistics, 60 percent of homes on the Navajo Nation lack telephone lines and just over half of the reservation has wireless coverage.
