What to do in a far-away emergency?

I'm thinking of going backpacking with a couple of friends in Southeast Asia for two weeks, and using a GPS tracker with an alert function. Only trouble is, who should I alert, and what could they do?

I was thinking about how to keep friends and family updated and have had good experiences sailing with Yellowbrick trackers. These have a small red alert button on the bottom, which, when pressed, sends out SMS and email alerts with a position to up to ten people.
The trouble is, what should those ten people then do? I don't have any friends or family in Thailand, so what would be the best course of action?
FYI, in case it's relevant, my friends and family all live in the UK.
