Turns out, all you need to get the best in emergency response is a smartphone or an Apple Watch

Picture this: It’s late at night, and you’re relaxing on the couch watching TV. 

During commercials, you get up to grab a drink when you’re suddenly hit with excruciating stomach pain. You’re not sure what the issue is, but you know you need help. Immediately.

You try calling out to your loved one who’s asleep in the bedroom, but the cramps are so intense you can barely speak. You manage to reach 911 on your cell phone, but again, the blinding pain makes it all but impossible to answer the dispatcher’s questions.

What do you do?

Meet the Rescu App

Rescu is the fastest way to get help in an emergency, guaranteed.

With just two easy taps on your smartphone or Apple Watch, you can instantly dispatch police, fire, or medical first responders to your current location anywhere in the US. No talking required.

When you send an alert, the app uses state-of-the-art GPS technology to identify your exact location. It then immediately sends this information—along with your pre-registered personal and medical info—directly to Rescu’s private UL-certified monitoring center.

If you’re in too much pain to speak, hiding from an intruder, or living with hearing loss, explaining where you are and what your medical history looks like in an emergency can be difficult or impossible. 

The Rescu app takes this factor out of the equation, sending your dispatcher and first response team the vital information they need to provide you with the best possible care.

At the same time, Rescu notifies all your pre-listed emergency contacts via text message, showing them which service you requested and providing a link to your current location. That way, they’ll know exactly where to find you to provide support.

Dispatcher Text Chat & Call Features

If your situation allows, you’ll always have the option to start a text chat or phone call with one of our dedicated dispatchers after sending an alert. 

For those emergencies where you need to provide more information or stay hidden, these features can be literal lifesavers. 

Faster & More Affordable Than Leading Alert Systems

While reading through this section, you may have thought to yourself, Don’t other emergency response companies provide GPS dispatch?

And you’re right. 

Companies like LifeAlert and Bay Alarm Medical do provide location-based dispatch services. But not without additional monthly fees. 

Not to mention, you’ll also have to deal with setup costs and additional equipment. Some companies even require you to sign yearly contracts.

With Rescu, there’s no extra equipment, no contract, and no additional fees for GPS dispatch. All you need is your phone or Apple Watch. 

And the best part?

Thanks to its call-free system and private monitoring center, Rescu is the fastest way to get help in an emergency—a whopping 23 times faster than 911!

Who We Are

Rescu is owned and operated by the Watchlight Corporation, a veteran-owned and operated security technology company with over 50 years of experience saving lives.

And that scenario you read at the beginning of the article? 

That actually happened. Watchlight and Rescu founder, Paul Piscatelli, went through that exact experience. 

Luckily, he was able to fight through the pain long enough to give the dispatcher his information, and the ambulance finally arrived thirty minutes later. But had the situation been more severe, it could’ve cost him his life.

To make sure no one had to go through the fear and frustration that he did, Paul created Rescu, allowing people of all ages to get help in an instant.

The Rescu app was born out of necessity. 

To help people in situations like Paul’s. To avoid the life-threatening delays that are all too common with the 911 system. To provide a reliable lifeline for the deaf and hard-of-hearing community. To provide seniors with independence and caregivers with peace of mind. 

To save lives.

In an emergency, every second can make all the difference. We created Rescu so that you’ll never have to worry about wasting a single one.
