I am a 74 year old woman. I live alone. About 1:30 AM, I was having trouble breathing. I pushed my Life Alert bracelet and stated, “I can’t breathe.” Within minutes, the EMT was at my house. My breathing was so shallow, I didn’t think I would be able to open the door. I was given medical assistance and was rushed to the hospital with acute respiratory failure. Indeed, Life Alert saved my life.

My mother got sick with stomach pains. After taking some over-the-counter med, the pain got worse. She pushed the [Life Alert] button and medical help arrived very fast. We are all very pleased. She had to go into emergency surgery to remove her gallbladder. She is doing great! Thank you, Life Alert, you saved my mother’s life.

The carbon monoxide alarm went off. Fire department arrived quickly. Turned off furnace and brought fans in to clear air. Furnace had a leak. Fire department said levels were dangerously high. So, basically the Life Alert alarm saved the 3 people I love most. Thank you.
