RapidSOS

In partnership with public safety, RapidSOS has created the world’s first intelligent safety platform (the RapidSOS platform) that securely links life-saving data from 500M+ connected devices, sensors, and apps directly to 112/999/911 and first responders, providing them with real time, incident specific data in an emergency. The RapidSOS platform is an NG911 standards-compliant Location Information Server and Additional Data Repository, which is accessible to all authorized Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) through integrations into all major call-taking equipment, mapping software & CAD products. 

The rich data available to PSAPs with access to the RapidSOS platform, empowers them to provide more efficient and effective emergency responses. It provides secure access to accurate device location data from millions of iPhones and Android devices, without the need for the caller to use an app. Additional emergency data is also available from databases of user profiles (e.g. medical data from MedicAlert), smartphone apps (e.g. Uber), wearable devices, connected cars, connected buildings and security systems.

There are two ways to access the RapidSOS platform:

Get access with RapidSOS Portal

RapidSOS Portal is a web-based method for PSAPs to access the RapidSOS platform within a matter of weeks. PSAPs with RapidSOS Portal can receive the benefits of all existing and newly added data sources available on the RapidSOS platform. They can also access training and admin tools, and view real-time data for their agency’s jurisdiction on a single map view. Simply sign up at RapidSOSPortal.com to authorize your PSAP and get started.

Integrate with your existing PSAP software

PSAPs can access data from the RapidSOS platform through direct integration with their existing CPE, CAD, or mapping software. When a call comes in from an enabled device to a PSAP with the RapidSOS integration, the platform is automatically queried for location and additional data. Information is presented to the user as supplemental data and is streamlined into existing dashboards and PSAP workflows for ease of use and effectiveness. RapidSOS is partnered with all major PSAP technology vendors, enabling integration with the RapidSOS platform through a simple software update. Contact RapidSOS and your software provider to get started.
