  1. You press SOS to send an emergency alert.
  2. GEOS quickly responds in your native language.
  3. You describe your emergency so responders know whom and what to send.
  4. Responders advise you when to expect assistance — and suggest potentially life-saving actions to take in the meantime.
  5. You communicate with family and friends, letting them know the situation and where to contact the rescue team.
  6. Help arrives.
