Rave Panic Button Added to FirstNet App Catalog
Tuesday, April 21, 2020 | Comments

Rave Panic Button is now First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet) Listed and accessible via the FirstNet App Catalog. The mobile app instantly communicates emergencies to 9-1-1, on-site personnel and first responders for faster, more effective emergency response.

Through the app, public-safety officials receive critical emergency data for situational awareness, allowing them to arrive on scene armed with the information needed to respond more efficiently. Across the United States, Rave’s solutions protect nearly 10,000 schools and government agencies, which have used the system more than 30,000 times for both everyday medical incidents and larger safety emergencies.

The Rave Panic Button, used by schools, government facilities, first responder agencies and 9-1-1 entities across the country, has been used throughout the growing COVID-19 pandemic. Recently, schools and libraries in Suffolk County, New York, used the Rave Panic Button to rapidly disseminate critical updates related to COVID-19 to staff members, while providing a direct connection to 9-1-1 and first responders. Used during both critical and noncritical events, the app provides Suffolk County with instant two-way communications and interoperability in communities.

“Rave Panic Button plays an important role in helping ensure public safety best practices are extended into schools, government facilities and soft targets across the country by providing 9-1-1 and first responders instant access to information and communications capabilities that are crucial to their response efforts,” said Rave Chief Operating Officer (COO) Todd Miller. “Inclusion in the FirstNet App Catalog underscores Rave Panic Button’s value to first responders and affirms the rigorous safeguards in place to help ensure the app meets high security standards.”

Achieving a FirstNet Listed designation means Rave Panic Button is a vetted and trusted solution for public safety, meeting FirstNet app requirements.

“We only add applications to the FirstNet App Catalog that are highly secure, high quality and relevant to public safety,” said Brenda Kittila, vice president, FirstNet Program at AT&T. “And we’re pleased that Rave Panic Button is now Listed and available to FirstNet subscribers. Rave Panic Button brings public safety additional capabilities to respond quickly to emergency incidents armed with the context needed to ensure the best possible outcome.”
