Dispatchers received an Emergency SOS notification via satellite from a smartwatch, indicating that the subscriber required immediate assistance due to a vehicle emergency. Contact was established through text, and dispatchers discovered that the subscriber was a delivery truck driver. He was following his GPS and had driven his vehicle several hundred yards off the roadway, ultimately ending up over a cliff. The vehicle was precariously perched on the edge, with the only stabilization coming from the driver’s foot pressed against the brake pedal. Dispatchers utilized RapidSOS to confirm the driver’s location, and multiple resources were deployed to the scene. Responding crews successfully secured the delivery vehicle, safely extricated the driver, and transported him to the emergency room for further treatment. RapidSOS has consistently proven to be one of the most invaluable tools at our disposal, ensuring swift and effective responses in critical situations.
