Medical Alert Systems
Medical alerts connect you with the help you need, as fast as possible. One press of your waterproof pendant or wristband will initiate a call to one of our 3 certified monitoring centers. A certified Emergency Medical Dispatcher (EMD) will assess your emergency and dispatch EMS if needed, also notifying personal contacts such as family, friends, and close neighbors that can respond.
