HOUSTON, June 22, 2021 – PRNewswire – Raptor Technologies, the leader in school safety software, today announced a partnership with RapidSOS to make emergency data from the Raptor mobile panic alert product, Raptor Alert, available to 911 and first responders through the RapidSOS emergency response data platform. This partnership enhances the information Raptor Alert customers automatically provide 911 operators and first responders during school emergencies and improves the depth of integration with 911 center systems.
