A Message From The Founder
How and when did the Life Alert concept kick off?
In this photo I am standing with my Officer in Command (Genl Roland de Vries) with whom I had the privilege to serve with during the Bush War. Today we are all glad that those days are over, but at the same time I think most South Africans are sad about the crime situation of our country.
During the period 2017 to 2020 I once again had the privilege to work with Roland, but this time it was to establish Community Safety Units. During this time, I realise how vulnerable our people are and for this reason decided to develop a panic button system that will aid any person who are in need. I realised that a cellphone system is not the answer because in a real crisis your phone might not be with you, or you wont have the time to first open up an application.
We realised the answer is in a button that is always with you or in your vehicle and then we created the Life Alert, Community Alert, Tourist Alert, Vehicle Alert and Bike Alert solutions.
For us, it is all about keeping you and your loved ones safe.
