Emergency Response Systems


Emergency Response Systems (ERS) provide a value time-saving link between people who are alone or frightened of being alone, and a communications center. An ERS gives homebound or “at risk” persons peace of mind in knowing that help is only a touch-of-a-button away, 24 hours a day.

In an emergency situation, the ERS client presses a button he or she carries to activate emergency response contacts.
