Adding a "None of the above" option may be revealing.

I see that Cell Phones are leading at this time.
The local police deptartments are urgin that everyone put their emergency contacts in their Cell Phone under 'ICE'. (In Case of Emergency). Police and Medics are instructed to salvage the cell phone. Some one is supposed to check the 'ICE' contacts. They also recommend 'ICE1) (ICE2), ect. This is supposed to being going nation wide.
A cell phone might not survive some motorcycle crashes.
Cell Phones transmit where they are anytime that they are on. Many of the newer ones give you the choice of the exact location. For 911 or for just being on. Could be usfull for an off the road crash.

I've seen this posted everywhere and I wonder if there is truth to it or if it is just another chain email. Even if it is not I opt for a emergency contact card since if my body is busted to the point that I am incapacitated then my cell phone is most likely busted up too. Besides I don't want those emergency workers burning up my free minutes!
