In just a few simple steps, Alert1 medical alert systems work to aid you in the fastest way possible.

  • Wear the medic alert wristband comfortably on your wrist. Wear the alert bracelet at all times so you are prepared for any situation. After all, it has a 600-foot range around the base unit so you can stay safe both in and around your home. When wearing your alert bracelet, safety is within reach at all times with a press of the button.
  • Press the alert bracelet button in an emergency and get help fast. Slip and fall in your bathroom? Trip over a step? Whatever the emergency may be, just press the help button and we get quickly get you help. Our medical alert bracelets are waterproof, so you will stay safe in the shower too.
  • Speak with a trained operator from our Command Center. Our TMA 5 Diamond Certified operators evaluate the situation and contact emergency responders. Even if you’re unable to speak, our operators follow non-verbal protocols to ensure you get help.


Help Arrives From Your Circle of Care

After you press the help button on your medical alert bracelet, the operator contacts emergency responders from your Circle of Care. This is your customized list of who comes to help you during an emergency. It’s a personal speed dial for your emergency responders.

  • Prioritize three people for us to contact in an emergency. Pick three people you trust in the order you choose. You can list anyone you want—family members, a friend, a caregiver, or neighbor. Specify if you want them as a responder or notifier. Responders come help you in the emergency, and notifiers are informed you have pressed your button. 911 is automatically added as a fourth responder. Setting up your circle of Care is simple and ensures you always get a personalized response.
  • We notify your Circle of Care with updates of your condition. Your emergency responders are always kept in the loop until they arrive. If for any reason your condition changes, we let your responders and notifiers know. Additionally, we always stay on the line until help arrives—so you are never left alone.
  • Change the order of your Circle of Care at any time. Update your Circle of Care in your online portal or call our Member Care team at 1-800-693-5433. We understand that your contacts may move away or become unavailable. If that ever happens, easily update your Circle of Care so that your wellbeing is never at risk.
