RapidSOS

In partnership with public safety, RapidSOS has created the world’s first emergency response data platform (also known as the RapidSOS platform) that securely links life-saving data from 350M+ connected devices directly to 112/999/911 and first responders in an emergency. The RapidSOS platform serves as a direct data pipeline from connected devices, platforms, and systems to public safety. It is an NG911 standards-compliant Location Information Server and Additional Data Repository that is accessible to authorized Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) through integrations into all major call-taking equipment, mapping software & CAD products.

PSAPs with access to the RapidSOS platform can securely access fast and accurate device location from millions of iPhones and Android devices, without the need for the caller to use an app. The RapidSOS platform also offers additional emergency data from user profiles (e.g., 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 portal for PSAPs to access the RapidSOS platform within just weeks of claiming their account. With RapidSOS Portal, any PSAP can receive the benefits of all new data sources available on the RapidSOS platform, access training and admin tools, and view real-time data for their agency’s jurisdiction on one 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 appears as supplemental data in existing dashboards and PSAP workflows. RapidSOS partners with all major PSAP technology vendors to provide the integration through a simple software update. Contact RapidSOS and your software provider to get started.
