Emergency Preparedness Tip of the Week--
While I’m most familiar with the Lifeline medical alert system, there are many companies that make these services available. If you or a loved one has limited mobility or is a fall risk, you might want to look into a program in your area. If you have ever been injured or have ever fallen when you were alone and couldn’t reach a phone, you know how helpful these systems can be.
I once knew a man who could not afford a medical alert system and so he would clip his portable phone to his pants so that he could call for help if needed. You could do the same with a cell phone.
