Actually, to clarify what Cam wrote:

Securité calls are informational only. Like reporting a floating log, shipping container, or such. Also, often used to warn when a large ship is about to transit a narrow passage or opening.

Pan Pan calls are informational and generally indicate a danger but not necessarily any immediate threat to life or the boat. A broken arm, a small fire on board, taking on water, the boat dragging or loss of engine power, are all examples of a Pan Pan type call. Generally, they may ask boats to stand by to render assistance if the situation worsens.

MayDay calls are emergency calls. These should only be made if there is an immediate threat to life. The vessel does not have to be in distress. Heart attacks, boat sinking, boat completely engulfed in flames, etc... Pan Pan calls can often escalate into MayDay calls. Galley fire that spreads, loss of engine leading to the boat dragging on rocks in heavy weather, boat sinking because bilge pumps can't keep up with water coming aboard, etc.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

if she just damaged your boat at the ramp or told you have had enuff beer, then it is a Securité. Informational purposes only. Unless the wife has the car keys, then react accordingly.
