Updated 9/11/2015 10:56am | Applauding the Patriots’ victory against Seahawks in the Super Bowl XLIX™? Alert1 enjoys competivive sport rivalries just as much as it's members. The New England fandom is celebrating, but amidst the joy there is some sad news in the NFL world. The matriarch to the New York Giants®, Mrs. Ann Mara, passed away on Super Bowl™ Sunday. After her beloved husband Wellington Mara passed in ’05, Ann and children inherited 50% of the New York Giants® franchise. Ann Mara has been given the nickname of “The First Lady of Football” for her long standing franchise backing and support of American Football.

On January 18th, Mrs. Mara suffered a fall in front of her home during an ice storm and hit her head. Unfortunately, such incidents are common in adults over 65. It is estimated that 1 in 3 older adults suffer from fatal falls. Even prominent and influential members of our society can’t avoid that statistic. This why Alert1 offers senior medical alert systems. If you fall and get hurt, it is crucial to get help fast. The faster you can get to the hospital, the more likely you are to have a speedy recovery.

With Alert1, you don’t need a referee to make the calls - our fall-sensing pendants will call the shots for you. Even if you’re unable to press your help button, you will get the help you need. The system detects any sudden or jarring motion caused by a fall and then signals our command center. Our sensitive technology can differentiate between senior falls and everyday motions. With our 26 years of experience in drills and preventative defense, our equipment is the ultimate triple threat. 

Alert1 Is The First Round Pick

An official challenge or “call” from your system immediately puts you in touch with our Command Center. Unlike football’s restricted amount of calls, you receive unlimited button presses! You have access to the professionals at the monitoring center at any hour, day or night. Our trained service operators will stay on the line with you until you receive the response and care you need. No emergency is too big or too small. When mere seconds are left on the scoreboard, our support helps level the field to your advantage.

Fall detection is the player that anticipates unexpected tackles or blitzes on the home field. If you slip or stumble, you will get immediate care and support with fall prevention technology.  Signaling for help is now easier than ever. Gone are the days of old where you needed to manually dial the phone for help. Alert1’s advanced senior button notifies your pre-selected friends and loved ones in your time of need. If you prefer, you can opt to have emergency responders come straight to your aid. Fall detection is the 1st round pick that you draft for a successful season.
