Founded in 2012, RapidSOS has created “the world’s first intelligent safety platform” that links life-saving data from over 500 million connected devices, apps and sensors directly to safety agents, 911 and first responders. The company’s platform offers technology, insurance, and healthcare companies a turn-key API for adding 24/7 monitoring, voice, and data emergency response services. With a few lines of code, partners are able to integrate enhanced verification and high-touch monitoring backed by over 15,000 first responder agencies, enabling faster and smarter responses.

Some of the covered incidents include health monitoring, vehicle crash detection, home security, residential and commercial fire, enterprise security, gunshot detection, personal safety, critical event management and natural disasters.

So far this year, RapidSOS has supported first responders in managing over 130 million emergencies.
