Emergency Calling API

Changing the way you call for help

Talk to an Expert   Video Overview

Connecting your customers to the help they need

The ability to call for help is something we often take for granted, but there’s a lot that’s required to make an emergency call. That’s why, for the longest time, we’ve relied on dialing the digits “911” from our home or mobile phones to get help. Now, Bandwidth’s Emergency Calling API lets you empower your users to contact emergency services how and where they want, giving them peace of mind.

Embed public safety access right into your app

When every second counts, having to move between an app and your phone’s dialer to call for help can seem like an eternity. Embedding emergency calling functionality directly into your application means your users are never more than a button push away from getting the help they need, when and where they need it.

Get help where it’s needed, even if you aren’t there

Wireless technology has changed how we protect our homes. Now, users have the ability to check-in no matter where they are. But if they see something wrong and need help for their home while they’re not at their home, it can be complicated. Bandwidth’s Emergency Calling API allows users to use the location of their home security system, not the caller, to connect with emergency services and get help sent where it’s needed even if they’re not there.

Get connected faster with no need for phone infrastructure

VoIP calling is complicated and it’s not your business’ focus, but you want to provide your users with the added layer of service they need. With Bandwidth’s Emergency Calling API you can add the ability to connect to public safety without the infrastructure that’s traditionally needed which allows you to get connected faster.
