Rescue Me! is used for a call for help or assistance. You set up a help me message that might be sent in the future to certain people.
At the future time, you will be asked if you wish to cancel the sending of the help message. If you are unable to cancel it, the message is sent for help.
The message will be sent to primary and secondary contact phones and email addresses. The message may be configured to include your physical location (this option requires GPS enabled on your device).
You can use Rescue Me! as a way to regularly check on an older parent living at home alone. You can set up the app on your parent's phone so that your parent can confirm each day that everything is ok. If something bad happens and your parent cannot confirm, you can be alerted with a message and you can phone or visit them.
You can use Rescue Me! to be helped from a long meeting at work. Suppose you are going to a meeting that you know might be very long or very boring. You can set up the app to silently ask you during the meeting if you wish to stay in the meeting. If you do not wish to stay, a message will be sent to someone outside the meeting so they can phone or retrieve you from the meeting.
You can use Rescue Me! to be rescued if you become lost. Suppose you are going on a long hike, walk, or bicycle ride where there is no phone coverage. You can leave your phone in your car or at home and set it up to ask you at a certain time if you are back from your hike and you are ok. If you are not back in time, a message will be sent to someone so they can begin searching for you.
