First Response Announces Launching of Medical Alarm Commercial Clients Group for Businesses and Non-Profits Nationwide


Brewster, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/04/2015 -- First Response and its parent company, First Alarm, Inc. based in New York, have recently announced the launch of the company's long-anticipated Commercial Clients Group, which specializes in servicing small to large "facility-based" businesses and non-profit organizations nationwide with the latest generation technology in emergency medical alarm systems and personal safety devices.

First Response System, America's leading authority and nationwide provider of personal emergency response systems (called PERS) for the senior adult and individual health care marketplace in the United States, plans to offer these specialized personal alert systems and commercial emergency monitoring services to businesses and organizations that operate facilities and venues, both small and large, for public and private use.

The main purpose of these emergency response systems and monitoring services is to allow building staff and their patrons to call First Response live operators directly in order to dispatch local medical, fire and police emergency responders to the client premises quickly, during the onset of a sudden accident or emergency event. By the simple press of a personal panic alert button as part of an overall community safety alert system, the user is connected via phone line or a wireless cellular network to the First Response National Emergency Monitoring Center.

Scott Hazlewood, Managing Director of Client Services USA for First Response is spearheading the Commercial Clients Group nationwide entry into the business and non-profit sector marketplaces. Mr. Hazlewood stated, "First Response has been servicing venue-based clients nationally for more than ten years- from federal and state-run correctional facilities to sports and fitness club centers. It is only fitting that we create a boutique business that leverages our long-term expertise and operational capabilities in emergency medical alarm and monitoring to offer customized systems and response protocols to these same commercial clients, just on a much larger scale, both in volume and size."

With recent improvements in medical alarm and communication technology, especially wireless and mobile devices, First Response is poised to provide personal emergency response systems that can be deployed within any venue, large or small. Mr. Hazlewood further states, "We have the capability to monitor stand-alone venues as well as facilities that comprise regional groups or national chains; from a 1,000 square foot to a 50,000+ square feet building footprint including multiple floors."

The Commercial Clients Group will initially focus on community health care and social service residential facilities, independent senior living community complexes, education and child care centers, as well as fitness clubs and multi-sport and recreation venues. Plans for expansion into other sectors, both indoor and outdoor facilities, as well as mobile use applications are currently being explored.

The timing of this new business launch was not by sheer accident. With the introduction of a "game-changing" technology, namely GPS mobile devices, and a new generation medical alert system now available to the market, First Response feels businesses can now benefit from affordable emergency response systems to protect their valued employees and customers.

Greg Ribaudo, Chief Technology Officer for First Alarm Inc. and First Response explains, "The launch of the Commercial Client Group goes hand-in-hand with the introduction of our Medical Alert System Plus+ and GPS MobileCare device. These systems are ideal for big and small buildings and venues where users can employ portable panic alert button wearables, remote 2-way voice activated speaker stations, extended range signal coverage, and silent alarm capability. These are only some of the key features now available in our First Response systems for indoor and outdoor use."
