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.*64 And we’ll work to notify the appropriate First Responders.
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.
