Life Alert was founded in 1987 as an emergency response service catering to the elderly. Its most well-known and popular product is the Life Alert necklace, which is an emergency alarm that can be activated during an emergency, such as a fall that results in injury. Life Alert claims its service, which is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, saves one life every 26 minutes.

    Call Life Alert's toll-free number at (800) 360-0329 and request that a brochure be mailed to you. The brochure will explain the Life Alert service, including the costs and what Life Alert provides you with in terms of emergency response.

    Call Life Alert and order your necklace, along with your subscription package.

    Allow for shipping, which can range from two days to two weeks, depending on your location and the shipping options you have chosen. Your Life Alert necklace will come with instructions on how to set it up for use and phone numbers to call if you have trouble using it.
