Personal Emergency Response Systems

When an emegency happens to an elderly person or someone who is medically frail and alone, one push of a button can provide peace of mind.  Knowing that emergency personnel will respond immediately gives family members and others comfort knowing that their loved one has instant access to assistance.

Personal Protection ServicesA Personal Emergency Response System is a tone/pulse dialing system based on a wireless call button that activates the emergency unit in the residence. The unit requires access to a standard telephone outlet and 110V power outlet and is based on a two-way voice unit that opens communication through a speaker phone between the end user and the communications operator when the emergency pendant is activated.

The communications dispatcher can quickly evaluate the urgency of the situation and act accordingly.  If the subscriber is unable to respond, emergency responders are sent immediately.

Rural/Metro's Personal Emergency Response Unit has many flexible features such as:

  • Up to three wireless alarm pendants can be programmed into each unit
  • Waterproof pendant that can be worn in the bath or shower
  • Inactivity alarm
  • Optional wireless door indicator
