A mobile phone can be used for emergencies in both directions. I have a special profile on my phone that forces a ring only when certain people call. I do have to trust that caller-ID works properly though. When I'm out on a ride, everyone except these special folks get sent to voicemail. This affords me the luxury of riding when I otherwise couldn't and it allows me the peace of mind that should something happen like my home's alarm system getting tripped or my wife getting into a car accident, I'll still be notified and can respond. Sure, it's nice to think that we can just leave it all behind when we go riding but the reality of life is that there's more to life than just cycling.
