Safest Way to Set Emergency Number on Your Cellphone

[Prefatory Note: This post is courtesy of no other publication. It is the creation of the Head of our Safety and Caution Department, as a result of his having to deal with a person upon whom he came across on a walk this morning who had gone into shock as a result of having been confronted by a pack of a coyotes that our department head saved her from with an undaunting act of incredible bravery]

Your cellphone can be a lifeline for others to use in the event you are incapacitated. If you want any good samaritan or emt to be able to contact a particular person, such as your spouse or parent, there is an easy way to have your cellphone directory make plain who that person is and how to contact him or her. Specifically, do this: (i) Put a name in your contact/favorite list for the person to be called that makes clear to call that person (e.g., Spouse-Emergency; or just Emergency Number to Call); and (ii) even if you do not use Google Voice for any other purpose, get a free Google Voice number for that person so that, if called, the call will reach him or her and he or she will know it's important to answer.
