Emergency Blue


“I was really impressed by how quickly they responded to rush to my side.” — Thea Cassia

We started OnStar in 1996 with one goal: to keep drivers connected to the help they need, whenever they need it.

And over the past 20 years, we’ve connected to more than 5 million drivers who needed help — even if they weren’t able to ask for it. With Automatic Crash Response,1 Crisis Assist and 24-hour Roadside Assistance,2 we’re always there for you.

That’s how we were able to get Emergency Services to Thea Cassia when her vehicle was rear-ended on the freeway. Within minutes, first responders were on the scene to make sure that she was okay.

Things happen on the road. But having the knowledge that no matter where you are, someone has your back? That’s the power of peace of mind — the peace of mind that OnStar can provide you and your family.
