Who Can Benefit from Using Rescu?

Nowadays, ensuring the safety of you and your loved ones can be as easy as downloading an app. Specifically, the Rescu app! 

With the Rescu app, users have the ability to request medical help (as well as fire and police with the Rescu Prime upgrade) with just 2 taps on their phone screen. And the best part is that it’s the fastest way to get help in an emergency. 

While the Rescu app is a great tool for anyone’s personal safety, there are actually specific groups of people that it’s especially great for, such as:

Those Who Are Deaf or Hard of Hearing 

One of the biggest hurdles that people with hearing loss face is communication discrepancies. In emergency situations, that hurdle becomes even more difficult to overcome because their options for contacting emergency dispatchers are limited and aren’t always effective. As an example, there are video and text options for those who are deaf or hard of hearing, but the timing is dramatically slower and can be ineffective depending on the situation.

Fortunately, the Rescu app eliminates the challenging hurdles faced for those who are deaf or hard of hearing by eliminating the need to communicate to operators during an emergency. When someone who is deaf or hard of hearing finds themselves in an emergency situation, all they would have to do with Rescu is: 

  1. Open the app 
  2. Press the ‘Ambulance’ button (or Police or Fire with Rescu Prime)
  3. Press Send Alert

The best alerting device for those who are deaf or hard of hearing is one where there is no talking required. Not only is Rescu faster and easier than dialing 9-1-1, but it’s guaranteed that help is sent immediately without even speaking to an operator or using a system that may not always work. 

Anyone Living With a Medical Condition

In addition to those who are deaf or hard of hearing, people who have a medical condition can benefit greatly from having the Rescu app as well. People who suffer from conditions like diabetes, heart disease, early stages of dementia or even severe allergies need a quick and easy method for contacting emergency services as fast emergency response times can mean the difference between life and death. 

With Rescu, those with a medical condition can live more independently knowing they have the fastest way to get help in an emergency. With just 2 taps in the Rescu app, a signal is sent to Rescu’s UL-certified, 5 Diamond Monitoring Center that bypasses 9-1-1 operators and communicates directly with nearby emergency responders. Because of this, users won’t be forced to wait in a queue behind other callers and it eliminates the need to communicate verbally. 

Rescu also automatically alerts stored emergency contacts, so any immediate friends and family who have a relative suffering from a serious medical condition can have peace of mind knowing their loved ones are being helped. 

People with Home Security Systems 

These days, more and more people are investing in home security systems and wireless security cameras to protect their families and their belongings. While they are effective in identifying and live streaming potential threats when people are away from their homes, a gap exists when it comes to actually getting help there fast, from anywhere. This is where Rescu can help! 

Rescu helps you gain complete control of your home security and pairs perfectly with your existing home security system. For instance, if you’re out of town and get an alert from your security cameras, you can use the upgraded Rescu Prime app to request police assistance to your address immediately. 

Additionally, Rescu allows you to input special dispatch instructions such as gate code and entry location so responders don’t have any trouble getting in. And once dispatch has been requested, the app will also automatically alert your emergency contacts, warning them to stay a safe distance from the home until help arrives. 

Feel Safe with Rescu

Personal safety isn’t something you should have to worry about. Rescu was created because we believe everyone deserves to have access to fast help in an emergency.

With Rescu, you and your loved ones can have absolute peace of mind knowing you have access to the fastest emergency dispatch service available and can request help from anywhere at any time, without even having to talk.
