Medical Emergency Notification service
When the red Life Response USA medical panic button is pressed, the transmitter sends a signal to the base unit. The base unit, in turn, sends an alert out to the Life Response monitoring center, where a trained operator receives and responds to the alert.

If the subscriber is unable to communicate, the operator immediately notifies emergency medical services and previously designated individuals of the situation.
