Have you downloaded an emergency app on your smartphone yet? Do you have children or a child that is headed to college this year? If you do, listen up! I suggest you download the RapidSOS Haven App today (App Store and Google Play). It’s the perfect app for you and your family.
The RapidSOS Haven app should be the first thing you download to your College Student’s smartphone before he or she heads off to college. The RapidSOS Haven app provides safety and security straight from your phone. Mom Blog Society readers get 1 year of free access, and you won’t be charged until the free introductory period is over (then you can choose a subscription plan, starting at $2.99 per month).
The app is also super easy to use! With just one touch within the app, your son or daughter can connect to compatible 9-1-1 dispatcher systems and send vital information instantly. The app will instantly provide your son or daughter’s location to 9-1-1, even if they don’t know where they are or are unable to speak. Everything the 9-1-1 dispatcher needs to know can be communicated to them instantly. The great thing about this app is even if you are unable to speak you can text the 911 dispatcher, or worst case scenario if you’re in an unsafe environment and can’t speak, you can once again text for help!
With the Haven app you can even call 9-1-1 on behalf of a loved one, sending their precise location to the 9-1-1 center closest to them. You can also add yourself as an emergency contact to your child’s app so you will be notified if they trigger an alert to 9-1-1 on the app. This would be a great feature for your child to be aware of during their College years. I know my daughter is off this year to college and I’m already prepared to download this app to her’s and my cell phones and her dad’s too! Keep in mind that RapidSOS Haven will also measure your bandwidth of your connectivity and choose the most appropriate channel to connect over – anything from Wifi to 2G.
I don’t know about anyone else but this RapidSOS Haven app is an awesome idea! I find it to be beneficial in so many ways in case of an emergency and I feel every parent should make sure before sending their child off to college that this app is downloaded onto their child’s smartphone!
