The new system "Web 119" that the Deaf/deaf person uses the emergency call 1-1-9 quickly through a smart phone in case of a sudden illness or a fire attracts attention of fire-fighting headquarters all over the country.

It not only the Deaf/deaf can report by touching a screen a fewl times, but also the fire department can be promptly mobilized at the spot based on the location information on the smart phone.

About ten fire-fighting headquarters have already adopted the system mainly in Kanto region where Tokyo, Yokohama, and other cities are located.
