Emergency Contacts & Health Apps

It is important to be prepared for emergencies. Make sure to have your emergency contact and medical info with you! Your phone is a great tool for this.


How To Add Emergency Contact Information and Medical Information For iOS devices. 

  1. Open the Health app – defaulted on the device.
  2. Tap on your Profile Picture or initials.
  3. Tap on Medical ID.
  4. Make sure Show When Locked is turned on (to green). Fill in as much information as is relevant to you. If you have no known allergies or aren't taking medication, it still helps to write "None" or "None known" so that medical personnel don't assume you've overlooked these fields.
  5. Make sure you assign at least one person as your emergency contact person. You must save that person's name and phone number in your Contacts app for the Health app to be able to include it.
  6. Hit Done to save.


How To Add Emergency Contact For Android devices: 

  1. Open your phone's Settings app.
  2. Tap About phone And then Emergency information.
  3. Enter the info that you want to share.
    • For medical info, tap Edit information. If you don't see "Edit information," tap Info
    • For emergency contacts, tap Add contact. If you don't see "Add contact," tap Contacts
    • To clear your info, tap More And then Clear all.
