How does PERS work?
A call is activated by pressing a button on a small console unit or on a pendant usually worn around the neck.

The PERS unit must be connected both to a private phone line having a modular jack and to an electrical outlet. In an emergency, it dials a special number and transmits a coded message. The PERS unit has an internal backup battery in case of power failure.

Operators are on duty 24/7 to receive and respond to emergency calls.
