Frequently Asked Questions
There are a couple of reasons Rescu can be faster than calling 9-1-1. First, Rescu uses a UL-certified, 5-Diamond rated central station that communicates directly with the emergency services that have jurisdiction in your specific address location. This bypasses the step of the 9-1-1 operator and quickly gets your information to the services you need. Second, your information is stored in Rescu such as phone number, address, name. In cases where speaking is not possible, impractical, or dangerous, Rescu immediately dispatches the appropriate emergency services to your address.
It is common for emergency services to respond with ambulance and fire trucks. However, you can easily dispatch fire services and then dispatch ambulance within Rescu. Our central station will receive and process both dispatch requests.
Rescu 2.1 introduces two subscription options. The first subscription has no annual fee. This includes ambulance dispatch service and one dispatch address. The second subscription option, Rescu Prime, is $60/year, includes ambulance, fire and police dispatch services, and allows up to four dispatch addresses.
You can cancel a dispatch in one of two ways – depending on whether you have pressed the “SEND ALERT” button or not. If you have not yet pressed the “SEND ALERT” button, you can simply press the CANCEL button at the bottom of the dispatch selector in the center of your screen. If you have already sent the alert, you can speak to a live operator at our central station and request a cancellation by tapping the “CALL TO ADD
INFO OR TO CANCEL ALERT” button on the following screen.
Rescu ambulance dispatch is now free to anyone. In keeping with our Mission Statement, we want every single person to have immediate access to lifesaving services through Rescu. No Ads. No expiration. Just safety.
For those who want added protection of Police and Fire dispatch, they can simply upgrade to Rescu Prime at just $60 per year.
Rescu sends the appropriate emergency services to any of the addresses you have set up in your Rescu app (Menu->Account->Dispatch Addresses). You can be anywhere and Rescu will still get help to your configured address.
For example: If you have your home in Dallas, TX set up in Rescu but happen to be traveling to Chicago, IL you can still send emergency services to your home by selecting your home address in Rescu and pressing the appropriate emergency dispatch button.
(Note: Rescu provides emergency service dispatch to US addresses only).
