Emergency assistance with Volvo On Call*
Volvo On Call Service Centre1
To summon help in case of illness, external threats to the car or passengers, a Volvo On Call service centre can be alerted manually by depressing the SOS button for at least 2 seconds. A Volvo On Call service centre is notified, advised of the car's position and attempts to establish verbal contact with the driver to agree on the type of assistance required.
If verbal contact cannot be established, the Volvo On Call Service Centre contacts the necessary assistance (police, ambulance, recovery, etc.) to help with the appropriate action.
