    While your phone is locked, first responders can access important medical information and emergency contacts without having to unlock the phone.

    Simple process. On the Lock Screen just tap on emergency and you can set up vital information and then can be accessed by anyone if you are in distress.

    I'm not referring to a lock screen message but the emergency information setup. There you can add any medications you are taking and any ailments along with emergency contacts.

    Yeah, I entered that information on my KEYone a few months ago. Really nice feature that I found accidentally when going through the settings. BTW, is that standard on all Android phones or just the KEYone?

    I don't lock my Priv that does not roam around; but, in the USA one should place an emergency phone number in contacts list called "ICE" = in case of emergency

    That dials 911...at least for me...did that in error one time. The police called back asking if I had a problem. They were able to see where I was through GPS.

    Tap on emergency and then at the very top of the screen tap on Emergency Information. Don't use the keypad unless you want to call 911!

    It's Good. Also it's worth remembering the emergency services and first aiders in an emergency can also get quite a lot of important information from the other contents of your pockets. Something physical like your debit cards, driving licence, medical cards, paper copies of important information, doesn't rely on batteries (which may be low), or permissions (that they may not have), or mobile signal (which may not be present). Also if you are found in distress by someone, what happens next probably depends a lot on what part of the world you are in, according to the local cultural norms.

    ICE information is pretty common on smartphones today, ought to be part of the setup process.

    But doesn't take the place of having a Medical Directive in you wallet. Most US States have different ones available that can be filled out and signed and considered a legal document. And let's first responders know your medical conditions and contacts.

    Let's face it, even a huge tattoo on your chest might not be "good enough", unless it's signed and dated and witnessed.

    Thank you for bringing this up as a sort of public service announcement. I had set it up on my iPhone but just set it up on my BlackBerry KeyOne.

    As an emergency room nurse and a volunteer EMT, it can be super helpful for us to have this information. If you know your blood type, including that info is excellent in case you are in an accident. Also noticed there is a second tab to add emergency contacts. Don’t forget to fill out one or two folks for us to notify. The ICE thing is great, but when you’re using a smart phone that supports it, it’s easier for us to have all the information in one spot. I’m sure you can imagine the number of things we’re trying to process in a short amount of time.
