The round, which adds $25M to an initial close of $30M, accelerates RapidSOS's work partnering with thousands of public safety agencies, most major public safety software providers, and connected device companies to transform emergency response and disaster management. RapidSOS currently connects more than 250 million Americans directly to 3,500+ local 911 and first responder agencies – transmitting real-time health and medical information, vehicle telematics, multimedia, building sensor data, and more in an emergency.
"Integrated and now deployed across thousands of different public safety systems, RapidSOS spent seven years working with public safety to develop a powerful new platform to transform America's emergency response infrastructure," said Dave Nagel, RapidSOS investor and retired CTO of AT&T and SVP of R&D for Apple.
"This funding supports our mission to connect the world to public safety," said Michael Martin, CEO of RapidSOS. "With this new funding, we will focus on launching new data partners and expanding our emergency response platform globally to ensure everyone has access to emergency services when they need it most."
Since launching its service in 2018 in collaboration with major technology companies such as Apple, Google, Microsoft, and Uber, RapidSOS has helped first responders manage more than 90 million emergencies, saving thousands of lives nationwide.
