RapidSOS Haven is a great app to have for emergencies. The RapidSOS Haven app provides safety and security straight from your phone. This app is free for a limited time, and users won’t be charged until their free introductory period is over (then you can choose a subscription plan, starting at $2.99 per month).
With just one touch within the RapidSOS Haven app, users can connect to compatible 911 dispatcher systems and send vital information instantly. The app instantly provides your location, so even if you don’t know where you are, 911 can quickly locate you. All the specifics are communicated in an instant, relevant medical and demographic data, etc. (you provide this information in the app upon setup). One of my favorite features – Haven lets you text 911 dispatchers if you are unable to speak or feel it is unsafe to speak (possible in a hostage situation, etc.).
The Haven app also helps contact your loved ones in an emergency. With Haven, you can choose who you want your emergency contacts to be in case of an emergency and they will automatically receive an alert from the app. Another smart feature, Haven will measure your bandwidth of your connectivity and choose the most appropriate channel to connect over – anything from Wifi to 2G.
I thought the RapidSOS Haven app was a great idea. I think that this app would be very beneficial in case of an emergency. I would definitely recommend all parents check this app out!
