Notes: Some features of Punch Alert require a data connection either through WiFi or a cellular network. During an emergency incident, continued use of GPS running in the background can decrease battery life. Even in areas where Text-to-911 is available, it is not a substitute for calling 911 in the event of an emergency. All consumers should make a voice call to contact 911 during an emergency when possible.
