Well first of all, I guess you'll need to figure out how your going to grab the lat long from the gps. I see two ways of doing this:
1. If the phone comes with GPS built in:
Most likely there should be some API's available to allow you to access it.
 
2. If the phone doesn't have GPS built in:
Look for ways to link your phone to the GPS, most applications do it nowadays is via bluetooth. Now since your looking at J2ME, you gotta make sure the phone supports bluetooth API's (JSR82)

It looks like that you are creating a system that an E911 system does. Cell phone companies and the governments have already developed such systems.  This news article discusses the issues related to this a little bit:

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.
