What is the 9-1-1 Heroes Award?
RapidSOS wants to acknowledge the important work of 9-1-1 call takers. We especially want to celebrate those call takers who use technology to deliver the best possible 9-1-1 service. We want to share stories that inspire and demonstrate the amazing job that 9-1-1 call takers do every day.
What are we looking for in an outstanding story?
The story of a dispatcher who used the information available to them, such as information from RapidSOS, to coordinate the fastest and most appropriate emergency response.
Who is eligible for the award?
Any 9-1-1 call taker is eligible. We encourage you to nominate yourself or a fellow 9-1-1 call taker!
How Does it Work?
1. RapidSOS accepts nominations via our form online.
2. Periodically, we will share a nominee’s story on the RapidSOS blog, website, and across all major social media platforms. These featured stories will be among (but not all of) the stories that will be considered to receive the grand prize for most outstanding story of the year.
3. The grand prize winner will receive the latest Samsung tablet. RapidSOS will cover the expenses towards a continuous education course from the APCO Institute or online education course from NENA for the grand prize winner and honorable mentions. The winners will also be featured on all major social media platforms, our website, and the RapidSOS blog.
