Rave 911 Suite Deployed Statewide in Delaware

Following the success of the Rave Platform in New Castle County, Delaware has made Rave 911 Suite standard across the state.

Call takers can now leverage the platform’s data and communication tools and residents can create a free Smart911 Safety Profile, which provides additional data to help first responders save time and save lives.

The Chat, Notes, Location and Facility features provide call takers with additional tools to improve situational awareness and emergency response.

A key component of the Rave 911 Suite is the Chat component. Call takers can initiate 2-way SMS chat conversations with any mobile caller.

If an emergency caller is non-verbal, disconnected, or has poor coverage, the 9-1-1 call taker can easily contact them to send help or verify accidental dials.

Reduce Unresolved Cases and Unnecessary Dispatches through 2-Way SMS Communication
Through the Rave 911 Suite, PSAPs can initiate 2-way SMS chat conversations with any mobile caller. If an emergency caller is non-verbal, disconnected, or has poor coverage, the 9-1-1 call taker can easily contact them to send help or verify accidental dials.

For emergency callers that may have poor coverage, be non-verbal or in situations where they cannot speak, this feature allows the 9-1-1 call taker to easily contact them to gather more information and send help.

This Chat component also helps states resolve dropped calls and accidental dials.

The Rave 911 Suite is currently available across portions of 44 states and thousands of municipalities across the country, and has been credited with positively impacting emergency situations and saving lives across the U.S., including a missing child case in Arkansas, a heart attack victim in Tennessee and a man trapped in a house fire in Michigan.

Rave 911 Suite Receives Third Round of Funding from Michigan State Legislators

In November 2016Michigan made the Rave 911 Suite available to every 9-1-1 center, statewide and publicly launched Smart911 to every resident of Michigan.

The state initially funded a $2.2 million grant that covered the cost for any 9-1-1 public-safety answering point (PSAP) in Michigan to subscribe to the Rave 911 Suite.

This third round of funding ensures that the state of Michigan continues to fund this service for the local governments.

The state continues to fund the technology as it specifically helps resolve dropped calls and reduce unnecessary dispatches through Chat intervention.

“With this funding, we continue to entrust Rave with the ability to provide essential technology to reduce response times and save lives.”

Arkansas Continues Six Year Partnership with Rave 911 Suite, Rave Prepare, and Rave Panic Button

Rave has a long-standing partnership with Arkansas, deploying Rave 911 Suite statewide in 2011 and Rave Prepare in 2013.

As the first state in the nation to provide Rave 911 Suite statewide, Arkansas has been instrumental in helping develop components to the Rave platform including Chat, Notes and Facility profiles.

The continued partnership and collaboration between Rave and Arkansas provides improved data and communication tools to 9-1-1 call takers and better preparedness tools for citizens through Smart911.
