I fixed it! Swipe down for the cog, go to Advanced Features, Motions and Gestures, and turn off Double Tap to Turn On Screen. I just tested it in my pocket and it doesn't open the lock screen, and ultimately the swipe up that exposes the emergency call button.

Hmm did you happen to get a new case within the same timeframe? My guess is accidentally hitting the power button long enough, popping up the power menu and accidentally hitting sos on the screen when activated.

I don't know anyone with the same issue if it's software "Dead on arrival" may need to return and replace.

Thats the first thing i did It's been turned Off for a few weeks unfortunately Still Doing It, had to turn my phone off because it called 911 7 times in about an hour while grocery shopping, apparently the google pixel is having the same issue so it's definitely an android 13 issue

That's so messed up they need to fix it. They are going to get people in trouble for repeatedly calling 911
