24/7 Emergency response by trained professionals

MePACS is an approved personal alarm provider to the Personal Alert SA scheme (PASA).

Our personal alarms are monitored 24/7 by trained professionals, who respond to every call within 2 minutes and take immediate action as needed. The monitors quickly assess the situation, organise the appropriate help and provide all the relevant information to emergency services as necessary.

With a range of easy-to-use personal alarms that are tailored to different lifestyles and budgets, you can enjoy peace of mind knowing that you are in safe hands.
