This is one of those apps that you download hoping you’ll never need to use it but should a medical emergency arise you’ll be grateful for the app. What an easy, quick, and reliable way to ensure your loved ones are alerted to a medical emergency! I really liked that all you had to do was to enable the app and then everything was taken care of for you.
