While wearing your Alert1 senior panic button, help is just a button press away. We’re here to get you the help you need, fast. Here’s what happens after you press your panic button during an emergency. 

A Five Diamond Certified Operator Comes on the Line

Your emergency alert button connects you to one of our TMA 5 Diamond Certified Command Centers. Alert1 has two separate Command Centers located here in the U.S. so there are more trained operators to quickly answer your call.

After you press your emergency alert button:

  • We come on the line. A trained operator will be on the line asking if you’re all right after you press your panic button. State your emergency, and tell the operator if you’re hurt. Help will be on its way.
  • We contact help for you. After you speak with a trained Command Center operator or if you don’t respond, they will contact help. You get to choose if you want us to call emergency services or friends and family to come help you.
