ANI - Automatic Number Identification - allows 911 to see who the phone number belongs to.

ALI - Automatic Location Identification - shows 911 the location of the phone being used. Doesn't work well with cell phones as it shows only the location of the repeater.

FDGB - my favorite EMS abbreviation for those who Fall Down Go Boom.
Bladerunner #12
Wheelhouse #42
