examples help everyone comprehend things better, let’s examine Roy’s story from
Colorado. Roy from the often cloudy, but colorful Colorado and used to be an
artist. He loves the
holiday gift giving season and the color red. A few months ago, Roy fell
down in his house, so he got Alert1’s classic medical alert. While going to the
kitchen for some snacks, Roy saw a small, but vibrant patch of red and a
cackling noise. Unfortunately, it wasn’t a beautiful patch of poinsettias. It
was a fire in his kitchen! Quickly, Roy pressed emergency call button and told
the Alert1 command center the situation. In less than seven minutes, the
firefighters had come and put out the fire. Luckily, only part of Roy’s kitchen
was burned in the fire. Here, Alert1’s classic medical alert system really
helped Roy because it saved him and the firefighters precious time. Now one way
this could have been prevented was if Roy had an Alert1
Monitored Smoke Alarm. Roy’s house would not suffer as much damage as it
could have with our advanced smoke detection technology.
The Fall Detection Medical Alert System for Seniors
One of our newly
released medical alert systems is fall detection. You can use the fall
detection just like the classic: press the button and you will get help. The
special thing about fall detection is that it will automatically call the
Command Center for help when you fall. The fall detection pendant has advanced
Smart sensors that can detect when the user falls. Once the pendant senses that
you have fallen, it will automatically call our Alert1 Command
Center. An Alert1 representative will get you the response you need fast.
detection medical alert system is a great option if the user is prone to
falling or dizziness or other chronic conditions. These situations are all
cases in which medical attention is needed fast.
That’s the great thing about the fall detection system: even if you fall
unconscious, it can still get you help ASAP.
it’s time for an example. Jenny was originally from Greenland, where it’s still
pretty cold in the summer time. After breaking her hip in a fall, Jenny moved
to Maine at her son’s insistence. Her son also insisted that she get a fall
detection pendant. Fortunately, Maine is usually pretty cool. However, Maine
was unusually hot one day and Jenny’s house did not have an air conditioner.
While mixing the pasta, Jenny fell unconscious from heat stroke. She fell down,
and her fall
detection pendant automatically reached the Alert1 Command Center. In
minutes, the emergency services were at her house and were treating her
sunstroke. Luckily, Jenny recovered very quickly due to the quick response
time. The fall detection medical alert really sparkles here because it got
Jenny the immediateattention
she needed fast.
The Kelsi Mobile Medical Alert System for Seniors
Another one of our new medical
alert systems is the mobile
medical alert system. As the name hints, the mobile medical alert system
uses cell coverage instead of home phones. In fact, our carrier is T-Mobile!
Because of this, our medical alert system works nationwide. It works in your
home, in the grocery store, and even in a park on the other side of the nation.
This means that you or your loved one can get safety and protection everywhere
nationwide! When you need help, you press the emergency call button on the
pendant. Once you reach the command center, a representative will get you help.

The mobile medical alert system
is best suited for those who are active outside of their homes. This system is
great seniors who simply love enjoying what their town has to offer and for
those who love traveling around.
To see an example of this, let’s
look at the Perry’s story. Perry is from New Mexico and loves to travel.
However, his two children worry that something could happen to him while
traveling. Thus, to give his children peace of mind, Perry uses Alert1’s
mobile medical alert. To see enjoy some of Louisiana’s culture, Perry
traveled down to New Orleans. While walking from his hotel to the convenience
store to get some extra water, Perry spied an alligator on the lawn. Perry
immediately pressed his pendant, getting the command center on line. In
minutes, the wildlife agents came on the scene and successfully got the
alligator off the lawn. The mobile alert system did wonderfully here because it
protected Perry over 500 miles away from his home.
