RapidSOS is an advanced emergency communication company. Outdated infrastructure impacts millions of emergency calls each year. RapidSOS is developing an advanced technology platform to predict emergencies before they occur, warn people in harm’s way, and ensure that first responders are one touch away globally.
RapidSOS enhances the existing 9-1-1 infrastructure by providing a pipeline for data from connected devices into dispatcher systems. Wearables, connected cars, and IoT sensors linked to RapidSOS automatically detect health emergencies, crashes, and building fires and transmit rich data directly to 9-1-1 and first responders. The result is 1-5+ min faster response, 2-10% reduced mortality, 6.9% reduction in healthcare treatment costs, 20% reduction in structural damage in building fires.
