How you can make a difference

You know that having OnStar on your side means added peace of mind and a connection to 24/7 assistance for you. But did you know that it also means you can use OnStar to make a real difference in someone’s life?

If you see someone in need of help, simply push the red Emergency button to report it to our Emergency-Certified Advisors.*41 And we’ll work to notify the appropriate First Responders.*12

When should you push your red Emergency button to be a Good Samaritan?

If you see a crash, push it.

If you see a medical emergency, like a heart attack, push it.

If you see severe weather, like a tornado, push it.

If you see somebody stranded on the road who needs roadside assistance, push it.

If you see a situation that clearly puts lives in imminent danger, push it.

First Responders can’t respond to an emergency if they don’t know about it. And your simple button-push is the first step to making a difference.

Yes, being a Good Samaritan really is as easy as pushing a button.

Don’t hesitate. See it. Push it. Make a difference.
