I am an EMT full time so I deal pretty closely with this as well. I believe that our county can use a cell phone to figure out an approximate location probably based off of cell towers used. I cannot remember what it's called though. I'm sure it's very crude though.
I do agree that being able to text a dispatch center would be a great idea.
(for non-emergency calls they have VRS and other things, but that only works if you're at home and in front of the computer, etc)
