Alarm rescues elderly resident
MANCHESTER, N.J. - An emergency alarm at the home of an elderly woman here helped rescue her after she fell in her home while alone.
The alarm, monitored by Vision Monitoring, a division of GC Worldwide Security, based in Garden City, N.Y., alerted VisionÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s dispatchers, who connected with the resident via two-way voice.
Upon contact with the woman, who had fallen and injured her knee, one central station operator dispatched an ambulance and contacted the womanÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s daughter while another remained on the line with the woman until emergency personnel arrived.
