What does Rescu do? Why is it valuable? Rescu saves lives and protects property by getting emergency responders where they need to be faster and more reliable than a 9-1-1 call. No talking required! Rescu radically changes the concept of home and personal security.


Rescu is the new, faster way to get help in an emergency. In just two taps, this safety app allows you to completely bypass the often lengthy 9-1-1 routing process and get immediate help from your local first responders. When you sign up with Rescu, you’ll connect Rescu with specific addresses, so when an emergency arises, you can request fire, police, or medical first responders within the app, without waiting to explain your situation or location to a dispatcher.

You can send a fire truck, police car, or ambulance to your location in just two taps on your phone, and without any of the call routing of a 9-1-1 phone call. First tap: select the emergency response service. Second tap: confirm and send alert.

Because Rescu is paired with your saved addresses, it doesn’t rely on GPS to dispatch first responders accurately to your property—meaning you can send help to your home even when you’re not physically there. You can also send help to Mom & Dad’s home or your child’s location. Life safety is two taps away!

Rescu is an emergency dispatch app that can either work on its own or with an existing home security system. If your current system is triggered, Rescu enables you to respond and take quick action, getting the help you need faster. Monitor your home or office yourself; dispatch with Rescu!

If you’re in a situation where you’re unable to speak, or don’t feel like it’s safe to, Rescu lets you send for help in two silent taps, without you having to verbally explain your emergency to 9-1-1 dispatchers.

When you dispatch Emergency Responders, your stored emergency contacts will be instantly notified via an automatic SMS text message, allowing you to alert family and friends of your situation.


When you subscribe to Rescu, you can use one paid account to protect multiple addresses that can be accessed by different users, allowing you to protect your whole household at the affordable price of $4.99/month (billed annually at $59.88/year) or subscribe to our month-to-month plan at $7.99/month. Additionally, Rescu’s dispatch center is recognized by Underwriter’s Laboratories as the highest classification for safety and security standards which could result in a discount on your homeowner’s insurance policy.


If you want to feel in control over your family’s safety, adding enhanced protection to your home, and simply having the peace of mind that you’re READY in case of ANY emergency, then Rescu is the solution for you. Help is always two taps away. No talking required.

Great app to complement alarm monitoring

I am a father of two and have been receiving monitoring for an old Honeywell security system for several years thru a local company. There have been several instances during the years where the responsiveness of my alarm company was subpar from a dispatching perspective. With Rescu, I know that I have a direct line to police, medical, and fire response when I need it most and fast. I haven’t had to use it yet, but knowing that it’s there makes my wife and I feel so much more comfortable. Even if you don’t have an alarm system, I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a low cost alternative to expensive alarm monitoring. This is an amazing alternative to 9-1-1

Safety first

I am a single girl who lives in our apartment. I thought about buying an alarm system but didn't want to spend the money on a whole system when it's a small place. I got this app and love it! It's super convenient (since I always have my phone on me), it's easy to use just a few taps on my screen and I can have any emergency responders to my home, and it makes me feel safe knowing it's there when I need it. I'd recommend this to anyone.

I don’t understand

First... Alarm Relay is amazing. Great company!!!! As far as this app is concerned, it does not make sense!!! I am a 911 career Paramedic, so I have a valid concern and opinion. Notification of a third party to call 911 for you... WHEN YOU HAVE THE ABILITY TO USE YOUR CELL PHONE... is just delaying the process. Sure “I’ve fallen and I can’t get up” buttons are great. If you have the ability to speak directly with a 911 dispatcher... that’s what you should do. They have the ability to relay real time information to those that are coming to your home. Third party cannot do that! Third party is an extra, unnecessary step in getting help. Please take this app for what it’s worth and never delay care. Just this professionals opinion. By the way... absolutely use the monitoring system and buy the Helix hardware. There is nothing better on the market !!!!!!
