The United States has a severe fire problem. Between 1997 and 2006 (excluding the events of September 11, 2001), an average of 3,760 Americans lost their lives per year and 20,010 were injured annually due to fire. (Source: U.S. Fire Administration)
While regular smoke alarms just make a noise in the presence of smoke, Life Alert ® smoke detection units react to the presence of smoke or fire by sending a signal to our team of dispatchers, who monitor each detector 24/7. Our dispatchers can then communicate with the subscriber hands free and send appropriate help. They can also send help if the subscriber doesn’t respond.
If the batteries become low, Life Alert®’s monitoring center will receive a signal and call the subscriber when it’s time to replace them.
When you add up all these benefits, regular smoke alarms simply don’t compare; they don’t provide Life Alert®’s level of protection and peace of mind. In addition, homeowners may receive a 10 to 15 percent discount on their homeowners insurance with a monitored fire system.
