Want to see lockscreen message & the lockscreen notifications simultaneously. S5

On Lockscreen for S5 phone. I can display notifications eg who sent me text message and beginning of that text, OR I can display my ICE contact (have saved under owner information so it will display on lock screen) with phone number (and large font time with normal font date), but the phone seems to use the same area to display both, and I want both to be seen at the same time. Being able to access the torch without unlocking is handy too, and is unavailable as soon as notifications are turned off.

I already have ICE contacts in my contacts, so when locked, if red handset is swiped, you can ring my ICE, but only if the person picking up the phone thinks to do that, I want it to be displayed, so if there is an emergency, or I accidentally lose my phone and a kind soul wants to return it to me, the information is readily accessible.

Can I have my cake and eat it too? Torn between having notifications for use of phone - I want to see who is emailing me so I can choose how quickly to respond etc, know if it's just an app update notification or cool down etc without having to unlock, use torch quickly without entering PIN; also want emergency info accessible.

And I don't know that I'm savvy enough to add text to my lock screen image to display ICE info that way, and keep notification content on. (Though, at this point I might give it a go, and try not to obscure image.)
