“Emergency Contact – U.S. customers can now designate one of their contacts as someone who Alexa will call and text when they say “Alexa, call for help”. Using the Alexa app, customers select one of their contacts as their household’s “emergency contact”. Once setup, customers can say “Alexa, call for help” and Alexa will call their designated emergency contact as well as send a text message alerting them that the customer is experiencing an emergency. The emergency contact needs to have a U.S. phone number. They can call your device back via the Alexa app or an Alexa device with Alexa Communications enabled”
