What Parents and Carers Need to Know About Smartphone Emergency SOS Functions

Dear Parents and Carers, 

Most new smartphones include an array of emergency functions that could prove invaluable to you in a crisis. From sending notifications to specified contacts to connecting you rapidly with the emergency services, it’s no exaggeration to say that your phone could potentially save your life – or help you save someone else’s – in a matter of seconds.

This week’s guides outline how to use the SOS functionality on three of the most popular phone types: iPhones, Samsung and Google. Find out how to make an emergency call with just five clicks of a button, how to notify first responders of essential medical information and how to automatically inform friends and family of your location.

See the attached guides for further information.

Many Thanks

Mrs T Madden
