In the event of an emergency, every second counts. A Wilmington man's invention helps emergency workers better track your location. It's called the 911 light, and it's made by Alex Monroe of Cape Fear Systems. All you have to do is plug the adaptor in to your phone line. If you ever dial 911, the light will flash. The device is useful to both homeowners, and businesses. "Every second wasted in an emergency could literally mean the difference between life and death," said Monroe. Lt. Kevin McDonald of the NHC Fire Department said, "When you arrive and get close to the area it's going to aid in pinpointing that house." The 911 light costs $70. You can buy them by going to Cape Fear Systems - located at 215 Water Street, or contact your local fire department.
