A City Council meeting regarding the city’s new 911 system glitches has been postponed.

The city’s expensive new emergency system, the ICAD, was scheduled to be reviewed Monday morning but has been pushed back to Friday.

The review is being launched after a system glitch delayed paramedics from reaching a little girl who had been hit by an SUV.  She later died of her injuries.

FDNY Commissioner Sal Cassano has blamed the incident on human error, not system glitches.
