Personal Emergency Response Systems (PERS)

Personal Emergency Response Systems (PERS) aren’t just for the aging population anymore. While it’s true that PERS devices were initially intended for Seniors to help them call for help if they take a fall and get hurt, these devices are now used in many different types of businesses and walks of life, no longer are these devices just for Seniors. Active seniors, children on the go, property managers, lone employees, the uses are limitless for those that need a solution to keep them safe wherever they are. PERS & MPERS (mobile PERS) devices are no longer relegated to seniors, think far beyond “I’ve fallen, and I can’t get up”.

A Personal Emergency Response System is like the panic alert in a home security system in the sense that it can call for outside help in an emergency. Regardless of how old you are or what your health status, you can benefit from having a PERS device handy. In the event of an injury, natural disaster, fire, burglary, or other emergency, a PERS device can notify an emergency dispatcher to send help immediately. Some PERS devices can also call friends, neighbors, and family alternatively. They also tend to be a little easier to use than a cell phone in an emergency since they are engineered with a simple one-button design directly connected to highly trained response staff and are more likely to be available to you during an emergency. Cell phones have to be unlocked and you have to know your “location” or 911 staff must take the minutes to find your cell location.

Far too much violent crime happens on college campuses, Providing your college student a PERS device ensures that your college student can get help immediately at the push of a button. A cell phone will not help if it is in a backpack, or just out of reach. Unfortunately, with school shootings a stashed away cell phone will not get authorities there quick enough to immobilize a shooter. These may sound like extreme cases, but often just walking across campus after a late night at the library can have a tragic outcome.
