Use Google Voice to enhance your family’s safety

Google VoiceIn a new article on, No Victims’ author shares a way to use a free Google Voice account as an “emergency alert” system for your family:

“CREATE A FAMILY “EMERGENCY ALERT” Set up a Google Voice number that is set to ring every adult family members home, office and mobile phone simultaneously, and that is known to every member of the family (including elderly or infirm family members and children old enough to understand when to use it). In the event of a bonafide emergency (medical emergency, car accident, criminal encounter, etc.) and *after* calling 911 if appropriate, a family member can dial the Emergency Alert number and communicate the details of the emergency to the first adult family member to pick up. This maximizes the possibility that an adult family member will get the call and answer it because it is coming from the family Emergency Alert number and gets another adult family member involved in dealing with the emergency as quickly as possible.”
