Life Insurance Firm Offers 9-1-1 Location App
Wednesday, November 01, 2017 | Comments

Life insurance startup Haven Life announces LifeLink, a free app that connects users with 9-1-1 and instantly shares an accurate location.

The FCC estimates that more than 70 percent of 9-1-1 calls come from mobile phones, most of which can’t be precisely located. Available on iOS and Android devices, Haven Life’s LifeLink, powered by RapidSOS technology, addresses 9-1-1 caller location.

Along with one-touch 9-1-1 dialing, LifeLink users can call emergency services on behalf of a loved one, transmitting their location and other relevant information directly to the dispatch center closest to them. Users can share their location, see family members’ real-time locations and discreetly ask for help. And, in situations where users are unable to speak, text messages can be used to communicate with 9-1-1.

The app uses cloud telecommunications and data analytics to connect users to emergency dispatchers over multiple channels including Wi-Fi and commercial carrier networks, helping reach 9-1-1 in situations with challenging connectivity or limited bandwidth.
