Subject: Standardisation of public service addresses/redirect protocol

Message:
 

 
As data replaces telephony, transnational issues of finding public services arise.

Key services such as police, fire, medical emergency, coastguard become hard to find.

A two-part solution may be appropriate for ICANN to take the lead on:

1 - reserving standard numbers and addresses for key public services.

2 - a redirect protocol, so that requests to contact a key public service go to the appropriate provider.
