RapidSOS Responder Excellence Award


The RapidSOS Responder Excellence Award is an honor bestowed upon the fearless first responders who have demonstrated extraordinary commitment to utilizing RapidSOS technology to save lives during critical emergency situations.

The RapidSOS intelligent safety platform has revolutionized the way first responders access crucial information during emergencies. The RapidSOS Responder Excellence Award recognizes those who have gone above and beyond to harness the power of RapidSOS and the data provided by our technology partners to enhance their agency’s emergency response capabilities.

In the world of public safety, every second counts, and these remarkable individuals and teams have shown exceptional ingenuity in their mission to protect their communities. Whether it’s dispatching help faster, obtaining vital data about a caller or incident, or coordinating resources more efficiently, these first responders have truly demonstrated excellence in emergency response.

Nominations from ECCs and field responder agencies will be accepted through October 13th, and the inaugural awardees will be announced at READY23.
