Helping keep you response ready with emergency response solutions

When the bravest among us respond, Verizon Response Solutions can help them deliver the best outcomes.

Verizon Response Solutions are ready when you are.

We’re committed to help keep first responders ready. Response ready. Because every second counts when you answer the call. Local, state and federal public safety agencies can stay prepared, connected and aware with our emergency response–ready solutions.

We understand public safety needs and work continually to meet them by supporting you with the reliable, secure coverage you deserve. We’re helping build innovative emergency response solutions that could someday run fast and reliably on our 5G Ultra Wideband. With our 5G Ultra Wideband, first responders could potentially help protect and save lives in entirely new ways–and be response ready.
