Embed enhanced user safety features

Bandwidth’s Emergency Calling API more seamlessly connects your users to help when they need it. It can also automatically provide essential location information to the appropriate public safety agency so they can respond faster.

How it works

Just a few lines of code is all that stands between your users and public safety. Instead of maintaining expensive hardware, you can focus on doing what you do best: building applications. That means no costly upkeep—just simple, reliable access to help when your users need it.

With our Emergency Calling API, your software or application can provide more accurate location information from either a predetermined location such as a home address or current handset-based X,Y (latitude/longitude) location.
