Reimagining Emergency Response with Lightning
New Mobile application from RapidDeploy puts NG911 in the palm of first responder’s hands

Lightning: A Mobile App to Change the Game

Earlier this week, at APCO 2023, we launched Lightning, a new mobile app that delivers 911 call data and critical information directly to first responders' mobile devices, including smartphones and tablets.

The new Lightning application will provide thousands of first responders with 911 call data in the palms of their hands, transforming the way in which information is shared in the field directly improve emergency response, better preparing first responders and driving life-saving outcomes.

Powered by Radius Mapping and built for all first responders, Lightning includes a map, location accuracy, situational awareness and modern communications tools– all within a single, unified mobile solution.

Key Lightning app features include:

  • Responder location sharing, providing a holistic view of critical incidents and tracking of first responders
  • Live incident board for a common operating picture, improved communications and efficient video-sharing, for large-scale incidents
  • Vehicle telematics crash data with crash severity scores and cut plans to aide in extrication
  • Direct access to CCTV and real-time video sharing
  • Detailed Next Gen mapping, from GIS to indoor floorplans to the z-axis
  • Zero trust architecture and single sign on (SSO) for secure and controlled access
  • BYOD (bring your own device) with broad capability including iOS and Android devices
