A personal emergency response system that connects persons to the Emergency Response Center at Mills-Peninsula Health Services for any emergency situation. The individual presses the waterproof help button, worn on a chain around the neck, which automatically dials the hospital.

Various units are available including a voice-activated model. Staff will make presentations on the Lifeline service for groups and clubs as requested.
