RapidSOS, an emergency response data platform developer, has raised $85 million in a round of Series C financing led by venture capital firm Insight Partners, bringing the company’s total funding to $200 million.

RapidSOS said Tuesday it will use the investment to further scale its platform that delivers emergency data from hundreds of millions of connected devices to first responders.

The company’s data platform supports over 4,800 emergency communications centers across the U.S. and is integrated with more than 350 million devices to help users transmit real-time location, alarm data and medical information to first responders during emergencies.

"We spent the past eight years building the RapidSOS emergency response data platform in partnership with thousands of first responders — collaborating with leading technology companies to provide the right data, at the right place, at the right time to save lives across over 150 million emergencies annually,” said Michael Martin, founder and CEO of RapidSOS.
