Research / Statistics – Vodaphone research suggested in 2015 that fewer than 25% of people carry any details of emergency contacts leaving first responders with the difficult task of identifying a person and contacting loved ones. There 169 301 deaths in Australia in 2019, Lifeline reported 3318 people completed suicide, National Road Safety Strategy reported 1106 road deaths and Safe Work Australia reported 183 workers lost their lives at work.

- 52% carried no information about existing health conditions or medications.
