Remember those classic "I've fallen and I can't get up" commercials? They are for medical alert devices that are supposed to help people who have a medical emergency. However, I learned last night in my Alarm Awareness Training (don't ask! -- all I'll say is don't turn on your motion detector when there are balloons in the house!) that these devices may just notify the police, who are trained in little more than applying a band-aid. By the time the police dispatch medical professionals, the person in trouble may have lost precious time. Who knew?????
