Get 1-year free early bird access to the RapidSOS Haven app, providing individuals with enhanced access to emergency services.
Haven sends important data to 9-1-1 to aid in fast emergency response and better situational awareness for first responders.
Working together, RapidSOS and United Spinal will support those with spinal cord injury or disease (SCI/D), and their loved ones, by providing peace of mind that emergency help is one touch away when they need it. With one tap on Haven, the app connects the user with the nearest dispatch center anywhere in the contiguous U.S., while providing a voice connection and a data pipeline to 9-1-1, to transmit:
- GPS location
- Type of emergency
- Relevant medical and demographic data
- Text messages: Haven speaks the text message if the dispatch center does not have the capability to receive texts. Currently works one-way (user to 9-1-1); two-way coming in future
When setting up the app, users conveniently enter all medical conditions, allergies, and medications, so that if an emergency occurs, life-saving information is communicated directly to 9-1-1. Additionally, after an alert has been triggered, Haven notifies emergency contacts, so that family and friends are informed.
Haven represents a transformation in access to emergency services – from a phone call solely dependent on voice to a robust data connection for voice, text, medical/demographic data
The Haven app also includes access to RapidSOS’ Family Connect feature. For the first time, people can call 9-1-1 on behalf of a loved one, transmitting their loved one’s location and relevant data directly to the dispatch center closest to them. Additionally, Family Connect allows users to share their location with loved ones, see family members’ real-time locations without the distraction of a phone call or text, and easily ask family and friends for help. A user can choose who can see their location and when it is shared, ensuring privacy and control.
The Haven app is available for iPhone and Android devices and works anywhere across the contiguous U.S. and Hawaii, with one touch emergency calling in over 250 countries and jurisdictional territories.
