Pro Tip: Add Emergency Contacts on iPhone

With iPhone, you can add emergency contacts that will give you the extra piece of mind as you go about your day. Emergency contacts serve as backup when you make a call with SOS. First, your local emergency number (such as 911) is dialed, and next your emergency contacts through text message. Your emergency contacts also receive updates on your current location after an emergency has been reported.
