Not sure if coordinates are going to help you much, a 'closest' real-life 
address might be more helpful, but it's a question just how close is there 
something you can reference to electronically. Also, not sure about the per 
country implementation, f.e. our 911 here does not really like automated 
calls (automated alerts & silent alarms go to a different number and are 
generally not available through mobile phones).
