To ask for help in an emergency, we have to call 911, an option that does not work for the deaf and hard of hearing. While there are some states that recently introduced the SMS / SMS service for 911, it is not available everywhere. This is where Rescu could be helpful for the deaf and HoH community.
Rescu, a non-verbal communication service, has just launched an emergency service app in the US that works with government first aid agencies. In contrast to 911, the request is made via the app with just a few clicks and does not require a conversation with a dispatcher. Once the request has been sent, help will be sent. Not only does it send help, it also notifies contacts that have been set up in the app so they know you are in an emergency. Another important feature is that Rescu works from anywhere. Even if you are traveling and someone needs help at home, you can ask for help from your current location through the app. This is something that caregivers of disabled adults living alone want to investigate.
Rescu has its own private shipping center that is strictly regulated and has partnered with over 30,000 urban and regional emergency agencies across the US to deliver ambulances, fire departments and police with the push of a button. Rescu is certified by Underwriters Laboratories, a global safety certification company.
Rescu is a subscription-based service that costs $ 7 / month or $ 59 / year. Rescu is currently only available in the United States.
