At Prepared, we’re on a mission to build software that saves lives.
Every day there are more than half a million 911 calls made in the United States. While 80% of these calls originate from wireless devices, our 911 systems are built as if they're coming from landlines.
Our industry is bogged down by practices that stagnate innovation and discourage thorough evaluation. What could be an agile, modern process where effective technology can thrive has instead morphed into a vertical where it takes 10-15 years for significant progress to occur.
As a result of these mechanisms, and an absence of significant government funding, many 911 dispatch centers in the United States lack the ability to do anything beyond verbal communication. We’ve found that 911 operators believed they can do more and have the desire to receive more data, but a slow moving space and a lack of resources are holding them back.
But what if they could do more? We've embarked on a journey to answer that question by building a non-native, dispatch-guided software platform that:
