Emergency Services

Sub categories include:

Organizations in our community that provide emergency assistance to elders including crisis intervention, victim assistance, elder abuse prevention, protection services, and provisions for basic necessities in the event of an emergency.
Organizations which provide food, clothing, shelter, or protection on an emergency basis.
Emergency Response Systems enable persons who live alone or who have medical conditions to summon assistance in emergency situations. Participants typically wear a small portable button which, when pressed, signals a representative at a monitoring center who gathers information and dispatch assistance.
