Halloween is that time of year when little ghouls and goblins come to your door to scare you. But what is really frightening isn’t the little monster asking for a treat - but falling and not being able to get up. And lying on the floor like the blob, just out of reach of a phone, can have you feeling like Tippi Hedren trapped in a phone booth.
But with Life Alert Emergency Response, we can turn your Nightmare on Elm Street into a night of trick or treating in Mayberry. With one touch of a button our emergency dispatchers are there to help, 24/7, even if it’s the witching hour. Life Alert protects you against medical, fire, CO gas poisoning, and home intrusion emergencies.
Life Alert also comes in various personal protection packages that include monitored CO Gas poisoning and smoke detectors, which are as pivotal to independent living as Egyptian cotton is to a mummy. Life Alert’s CO Gas Alarm and Fire Protection System are monitored which means they send a signal to our dispatchers in the event that the eerie, puffy, mass of fog suddenly materializing in front of you is something burning on the stove and not a ghostly vapor.
Life Alert also offers a special HELP phone so your protection can be as mobile as you for when you find yourself suddenly staying at The Bates Motel.
Life Alert has been proven to save thousands of lives and part of that success comes from their outstanding quality of service and from owning its emergency dispatch center. Our Emergency Dispatch Managers go through an extensive training program and spend up to one year learning about the medical alert industry, equipment training, and recognizing various emergencies. They are trained to identify the emotional needs of the family and will supervise a crisis from the beginning to the end.
Another secret to their success comes from Life Alert’s cutting edge technology that would make Doctor Frankenstein envious. Life Alert seeks innovative ways to increase and improve on emergency technology that focuses on putting customer’s safety first as well as making the protection system so safe and easy to use that you can even shower with it allowing you to call for help in the event that a psycho with mother issues is lurking behind the shower curtain.
So if something goes bump in the night, just press your Life Alert button and help will be sent faster than a witch melting after a being dowsed with water.
With Life Alert, there will be no more fright nights (or days), just security in knowing that in an emergency, help is on the way, even if something scary is at your door and you can’t reach a phone.
