Remote operators can securely transmit text, picture, and video data with the click of a button.

Local Security, a Canadian security technology company, announced a partnership with RapidSOS to connect 911 personnel with remote operators in an emergency through the Local Security platform. Built-in partnership with public safety, RapidSOS’s emergency response data platform securely links life-saving data from over 350M connected devices directly to over 5,000 Emergency Communications Centers (ECCs) nationwide.

With this partnership, remote operators can instantly transmit the entire incident profile, including device location, video, and pictures available on the Local Security platform, to 911 in supported jurisdictions through RapidSOS. RapidSOS also supports the sharing of other emergency intelligence data, including health and medical information, connected building and alarm data, and more, to increase the amount of information first responders can obtain during a call. This empowers faster and more effective emergency response and provides first responders with the critical information they need to protect lives.
