The “In Case of Emergency” app is meant to help save your
life in the event you become a victim of a serious accident.
The idea is that if someone finds you in a state in which you
are unable to communicate, that person might check your
phone for important information about yourself. (Hopefully
this is done after calling 911!) If this person launches the “In
Case of Emergency” app, they will see an emergency contact
whom he/she can call, as well as any important medical
information that the paramedics should know.
