Emergency Response System (ERS) is a service designed to monitor consumer safety and provide consumers with access to emergency crisis intervention for medical or environmental emergencies through the provision of communication connection systems. A person may also wear a portable “help” button to allow for mobility. The system is connected to the person’s phone and programmed to signal a response center once a “help” button is activated. The response center is staffed by individuals trained to respond to emergencies. ERS services are limited to those individuals who live alone, or who are alone for significant parts of the day and have no regular caregiver for extended periods of time.
Emergency response system” (“ERS”) means an emergency intervention service comprised of telecommunications equipment (“ERS equipment”), an emergency response center, and a medium for two-way communication between the consumer and the emergency response center. Personnel at the emergency response center intervene in an emergency once the center receives an alarm signal from the ERS equipment.
