Medical Alert Program

We have had several of our citizens fall over the last few months.  Some of these falls have resulted in serious injuries.  On more than one occasion, response time was slowed because the person involved could not reach a phone or could be heard or seen by neighbors.

We have a police department, EMT’s and a volunteer fire department that are more than willing and able to respond to these types of emergencies, however, they need to be notified before assistance can be dispatched. 

I am sure that many of you have seen the advertisements on TV for the medical alert bracelets or necklaces that are worn 24-7 where help can be summed by the “push of a button”.  In checking, we found that Platte-Clay Electric Security offers this service to its customers in NW Missouri.  We also found out that the technology has improved greatly in the last year.  These new systems offer not only ease of installation, but ease of operation as well.  The city of Plattsburg and Platte-Clay Electric Security have formed a partnership to make a Medical Alert System available to all residents of Plattsburg. 

We have established and easy “no hassle” and inexpensive way to make this available to our citizens.  All you have to do is stop by (or call) city hall and we will have a system ready for pick up.  While you are at City Hall, you will fill out the paper work, then take the system home and plug it into you telephone jack.  If you are not sure how to “plug in” the system, we will offer assistance. 

The cost for this service is $15.00 per month; this is a 60% savings over the normal pricing in the NW Missouri Area. This price is firm through December of 2011.   Platte-Clay Electric Security will invoice you directly each month and you will be connected to an emergency center that is operational 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.  All you have to do to get this special offer is agree to try the system for six months, after that time if you do not like it, just return it to city hall.  On the other hand, if it gives you and your family the peace of mind I know it will, you can continue using this system as long as it is needed.  The paper work involved consists of 2 items, emergency contact information and billing information. 

How simple is that!  Brochures will be available in the next few weeks and we well make them available to everyone that is interested. In the meantime, if you would like more information, contact city hall.  Platte-Clay Electric Security and the city of Plattsburg are extremely happy to offer this program to our residents.
