Emergency Info Granada Province



Are you prepared for an emergency?

It would help  to have your emergency contact on your phone, if your are involved in an accident or ill in the street and a contact number cannot be found.  It is often a problem for emergency services to find that contact number if your mobile phone is locked.
You can place a contact number on the lock screen of your mobile and this can make all of the difference in an emergency!
You simply add the letters  AA   and then the  phone number of the person you’d like to be contacted in an emergency. AA stands for avisar a  or please call.  People use ICE in English speaking countries – in case of emergency.  Go into the settings and find screen lock and then lock screen signature, although other mobiles may be different. Type in the phone number and it will appear on the lock screen.
