|What Is AlertUSA?
|One answer to the needs of many older people for both security and independence is what's called a Personal Emergency Response System [PERS]: a signaling device that summons help during an emergency.
When an emergency occurs, you simply press the button on your pendant or hand transmitter to alert our response center that you need help.
Here's how it works...
The PERS system consists of two components: a portable, water-proof help button (transmitter), which the user wears or carries, and a receiver unit connected to the user's telephone line (no new line is needed).
If the PERS user experiences a fall or other emergency, medical or otherwise, he or she can simply press the portable help button to call for aid.
Once the button is pressed, it activates the receiver, which in turn dials the AlertUSA Emergency Response Center which has caring, extensively-trained specialists on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
You are quickly put into two-way, hands-free voice communication with one of our specialists, who simultaneously have your vital, life-saving information available in front of them on their computer screens.
They can see your pertinent medical history, your precise location, preferred hospital, and contact information for your closest Responders (relatives, neighbors, and friends).
They can then contact these responders as well as your local Emergency Services (ambulance, police, fire), and relay your information and any special instructions, all while remaining in constant voice communication with you until help arrives, enabling early intervention and reducing the risk of the debilitating injuries that often result from long periods of time without help following a medical emergency.
