What is a panic alarm?

panic alarm is a compact device normally worn on a person’s body, either on their wrist or as a pendant around their neck.


How does panic alarm work?

The alarm usually has a small button on it that when pressed will activate the alarm by sending a signal for help to either a contact or monitoring service. The monitoring service will then call the client through the alarm system. Once they make contact with you they will be able to ascertain what help you require. If the alarm signal is sent straight to a family member, it is up to them to respond directly to the client.
