"My first encounter with Alert1 happened the day after it was installed. My husband had just gotten home from the hospital, and I was nervous. I had to take a morning shower, so went into the bathroom, passing the monitor. I accidentally pushed the button, did not notice it and went to the shower.

Before I knew what was happening, there was a commotion in the living room. I walked out in the altogether, thinking my husband was in trouble. Imagine my surprise, when into the bedroom walked the cutest youngest EMT on the squad.

I am 86, so you can imagine how I felt. Thanks for sending them here, because I actually might have needed them. I have used the service on another occasion when my husband was not able to get out of bed, due to weakness. The Alert1 system had him taken to the hospital in no time at all."

“Shortly after I got my Alert1, I adopted a Greyhound dog. She had skinny legs and when she stepped into my fenced,snow-filled yard, she seemed unable to get out. I was in my nightclothes wearing a nightgown, slippers and a light robe, but I was so concerned about the dog I foolishly stepped out and closed the slider behind me. 

And when the dog saw me she freed herself – but I could not open the slider. I called for help but my neighbor didn’t hear. I was so cold and scared – then I remembered the medical alert around my neck. I pressed the button and the firemen showed up in minutes. They opened the door, wrapped me in a blanket and left as soon as they were certain that I was all right."

"More than a year ago my son, Dr. Timothy F., M.D. gave me the life saving gift of the “Med Alert System.” The reason I define the “Med Alert” in this particular way = it saved my life about six months ago.

Late one evening I got up from an easy chair in my bedroom, went to my closet, turned quickly, tripped over ? something (I still don’t know what) and fell – piercing a hole in my skull + bleeding profusely. For a few moments I sat on the floor stunned.

Suddenly – I remembered Med Alert around my neck. I pressed it. Help came in 5 minutes. Another son arrived in 6 minutes + said it looked like a crime scene. Subsequently I was confined to two hospitals + rehab. Memory has returned + I have slight difficulty walking.

Without the Med Alert I would have bled to death. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! PS. My family thanks you too!”
