My phone keeps ringing the emergency services when my phone is in my pocket. How can I stop this from happening?

Hi @Bazbaz Do you have Accidental Touch protection switched on? check Settings-Display-Accidental Touch Protection. You could also check that you do not any Smart Lock settings activated https://www.samsung.com/uk/support/mobile-devices/what-is-smart-lock-and-how-do-i-use-it/
However if you find this is not reliable you can turn off SOS dialing as shown in the link above.

I do not work for Samsung or make Samsung Products but provide independent advice and valuable contributions.

Yeah I've always had accidental touch turned on and it still dials the emergency services. I've tried the timer dialing emergency number thing, so hopefully that'll work

In addition to adding a countdown, also change the number to something random.
