Better check the legalities of auto sending anything to emergency 
services. Due to instances of false alarms, this is not legal in many 
places, and/or can involve large fines. This is true even of home 
fire and security alarm systems. If you have false alarms and a
system that reports to emergency services, you can be fined 
heavily. The idea of alarm function is not bad. The idea of any 
messaging to emergency services is very bad.
