Typically, when you think of ADT home monitoring, you automatically think of security protection against burglaries. And while we do provide that valuable service, ADT’s 24/7 monitoring is also great in the event of a fire, flood, carbon monoxide leak and medical emergency. All of these are virtually impossible to predict—some things just happen at random. Rather than taking a chance to encounter something catastrophic, it’s better to be ready at a moment’s notice.

ADT monitoring keeps guard over you, your loved ones and your home— so that you are never unprepared during your specific emergency. We’ve received countless stories about how ADT monitored systems have helped numerous people throughout North America.

Here is just one unique story of many out there. It’s about a couple from Atlanta, GA who nearly experienced a complete tragedy overnight…if it hadn’t been for several factors:

  • Quick thinking
  • The Effectiveness of the ADT operator
  • The skills of the first responders at the scene and the medical team at the hospital

In this specific scenario, Sharron, one of the homeowners, experienced extreme nausea in the middle of the night and into the early morning. Her husband had left the house that morning; that’s shortly when Sharron began to have difficulty breathing. After fumbling with the phone, she realized she couldn’t work the phone…meaning should couldn’t dial 911 for help. Fortunately, Sharon went to her purse and retrieved her ADT security system wireless key fob. All she had to do was press the alert button. She was then connected to Kellee Fair, an ADT operator. Kellee immediately contacted the Puckett EMT in Atlanta. It turned out Sharron was having a heart attack.

Due to the professionalism and dedication of the entire team involved, Sharron’s life was saved. And afterwards, Kellee and Sharron would later meet in person at an ADT office in Altlanta. Kellee Fair, the operator, was presented with the ADT Lifesaver Reward for helping saveSharron’s life. It’s amazing to see how one action can completely transform someone else’s life. And that’s what happened here.

In addition to the key fob that Sharron used to contact Kellee at ADT monitoring, there is a medical alert system that specifically targets medical emergencies. These aren’t just for the elderly– they are also for anyone who has a medical condition where they may need quick, emergency assistance at any moment. It allows the wearer to continue living an independent lifestyle, but have the security of knowing that help is just around the corner if it’s needed. Call us to find out more about the medical alert system.
