RapidSOS Announces Partnerships to Link Wearables to First Responders in an Emergency

RapidSOS announced partnerships with five wearable companies - WiseWear, Fusar, Kairos, Lumenus, and ROAR for Good to provide a rich data link to 9-1-1 from their wearable products. The partnerships will allow users to connect to 9-1-1 through the push of a panic button or by detection from a wearable device during a crash or medical emergency. 9-1-1 systems can immediately identify and locate landline calls in emergency situations. Yet, calls from mobile phones often cannot be precisely located by these systems and callers typically must speak their location and other information to 9-1-1 to get the help they need. RapidSOS' Emergency Platform links data from multiple sensors on wearable devices — including real-time health information, precise location, emergency type, and stored user profile information – to 9-1-1 and first responders during an emergency. What previously was limited to a voice conversation and limited data is now transformed into a rich data link to 9-1-1. The result is 9-1-1 call takers with the information they need to dispatch appropriate help, first responders with unprecedented situational awareness, and customers who can receive emergency help faster during an emergency. RapidSOS is partnering with technology companies to link wearables, connected cars, mobile phones, and IoT sensors directly to 9-1-1 and first responders.
