What Parents and Carers Need to Know About Smartphone Emergency SOS Functions
Hopefully, neither you nor your children will ever have the need to use a phone’s SOS features. But it’s not something that ought to be left to chance. It’s important that you and your children learn how to operate your (or their own) phone’s emergency functions. Depending on the make and model, your phone could provide first responders with vital medical information and notify your nominated contacts of your location. Most important of all, just a few clicks of a button can put you in touch with the emergency services inside a matter of seconds.
