Problem

More Than One Million 911 Calls Sent to Wrong 911 Center Each Year, Require Transfer

More than 240 million 911 calls are made annually. Every single day, tens of thousands of these calls are sent to the wrong emergency call center due to call routing errors. The misrouted calls then have to be transferred to the correct jurisdiction before help can be sent.

A recent NBC segment below showcases how call routing errors occur. This is an urgent problem that requires an immediate solution. Kazoo provides the solution nationwide.

Solution

Perfect Call Routing via Kazoo

Kazoo enables victims to connect to 911 and automatically relay precise pinpoint location data to first responders. Kazoo’s technology ensures accurate call routing every single time—which results in speedier response times that victims so desperately need.

Product

All-in-one safety solution, in seconds

The screens below demonstrate how Kazoo’s life-saving technology works. When you tap SOS (left), your emergency contacts (right) see an instant broadcast of the scene and have (7) vital data points and functions at their fingertips.

all-in-one

The screens below show a real-life scenario where a victim taps the SOS button. A live stream is instantly broadcast to their emergency contacts, who then call 911 on their behalf.

The 911 dispatcher instantly receives all of the victim’s vital information (name, phone number, longitude/latitude coordinates), while the emergency contact describes what’s going on at the scene. All of this happens in under 30 seconds.
