*An e-mail address is not required to use this service.
Our communications center is capable of receiving additional 911 location data with RapidSOS technology. Starting with Apple's iOS 12, and Google's Android 9, RapidSOS is integrated into the phone. This means that when you call 911 from your smartphone, we will receive your true GPS location rather than relying on your cellular carrier's network. With cell towers being many miles apart with mountainous terrain, our dispatchers would not be able to accurately locate your phone using traditional methods.
