At Kazoo, we’re transforming how smartphones connect to 911, and turning them into personal safety lifelines!
America’s 911 infrastructure is broken, with more than ten million calls being sent to the wrong emergency call center each year, requiring transfers that wastes a victim’s valuable time.
With 240 million 911 calls being made from phones in the U.S annually—80% coming from wireless devices—this problem is only going to get worse.
The lack of an integrated solution has been a stumbling block for 911 centers for quite some time, and Kazoo is here to change that!
In today’s blog, we will be discussing our solution to this problem, and how our ground-breaking technology can work to potentially save the lives of millions.
Solution to the USA’s Broken 911 System
According to the FCC (Federal Communications Commission), over 10,000 lives could be saved annually by reducing 911 response times by only a minute.
Kazoo saves that minute by accurately connecting callers to 911 operators that are closest to their location.
We have developed the only application of its kind that automatically relays pinpoint accuracy of a caller’s exact location, enabling first responders to arrive at the scene quicker.

In any potentially life-threatening situation, Kazoo’s SOS capabilities provide peace of mind for its users and their families.
Kazoo’s Groundbreaking Technology
Our technology allows victims to start live-streaming to their emergency contacts, all at the touch-of-a-button.
Once they start streaming to their emergency contacts, everyone is able to see their exact location and contact the 911 call center if necessary. This can be done even if the contact is halfway across the world!
Once the dispatcher is contacted, they receive all of the victims vital information including:
- First and Last Name
- Latitude and Longitude Coordinates of Their Exact Location
- Personal Phone Number
All of this information is transmitted in under 30 seconds, while the emergency contact describes exactly what’s going on at the scene.
All of this technology was made possible through our partnership with RapidSOS, a trusted data provider for public safety agencies worldwide.
Our partnership with RapidSOS allows us to link over 350 million devices with thousands of agencies across the world.
In addition, this allows for global expansion of Kazoo’s personal safety platform in the future.
