When you press the button, you'll be instantly connected to our safety response partner, Namola. Upon receiving your distress call, Namola will immediately call you back to confirm incident details and engage the right emergency responders. Please answer the phone as soon as possible.
Make sure to use the SOS button in the following situations below:
Medical emergencies refer to injuries from road accidents, having trouble breathing, and anyone who is unconscious or with bleeding that requires medical attention.
Security emergencies include life-threatening situations while driving, being stranded in an unsafe location with a broken vehicle, attempted vehicle hijack or any form of violence or attack.
To report an emergency:
