"I had been a little hesitant to try this service since I did not have a landline phone. Be Safer At Home however, offers services to those without a home phone. Once I found out, I called to start receiving services. Everyone is very caring and pleasant to talk to. Upon installation, the technician made sure I understood everything and did not hesitate to explain it again if I had any questions. Thank you so much, Be Safer At Home".

Cellular Personal Emergency Response Service (MXD3G)
The Be Safer At Home cellular medical alert system is for those without a landline telephone. This unit consists of a panic button and the base unit with a cellular antenna.
The panic button is an emergency medical alert bracelet or necklace. It is waterproof, and worn by the subscriber at all times. When pressed, the panic button activates the medical alert base unit. An attendant from the Response Center will immediately speak to the subscriber through the base unit's two-way voice speaker. The subscriber explains his/her emergency and the attendant alerts the subscriber's personal responders (family, friend, or emergency services).
The use of Personal Emergency Response Systems (PERS) has grown dramatically in recent years. Not only for the elderly, but also for patients recuperating after surgery, and potential victims of domestic violence.
