Medical, Safety and Personal Emergency Response Service Now Available in Mexico

Ajijic, Jalisco, Mexico, October 3, 2011: Help, I’ve fallen and I can’t get up! “Everyone who’s heard that phrase, immediately understands what our product is about”, says Michael Haskett of Vida Alarms, a new company centered in Ajijic offering medical, safety and personal emergency response alarm services. Although Mexico has attracted retirees for generations, this sort of personal alarm service has never been available here before. Now expats in Mexico as well as Mexican nationals can have the peace of mind that comes with knowing you’re not alone: If you have an emergency requiring medical, fire, or police assistance, help can quickly be on its way.

“Actually, in many cases, it’s the family located somewhere far away that orders a personal alarm for their loved one living in Mexico,” explained Haskett. “If they can’t be there themselves, they want to know Mom or Dad will get whatever help they need, especially if they need it quickly in an emergency.”

As is widely known, many older retirees are fiercely independent and try to stay active. However, according to Haskett, the fear of falling sometimes makes people start to limit their activity. “That’s particularly unfortunate when you realize that being active can help keep you healthy, as well as happier. Having a Vida Alarm gives the wearer confidence. If they should happen to need help unexpectedly, they know they’ll get it. Wearing the alarm, which is available as either a pendant or bracelet, encourages older people to stay more active longer.”

Knowing Vida Alarms imports the most reliable systems and technology available anywhere, matched with a fully bilingual staff and personalized services, are huge selling points. When new accounts are set up, clients provide information about medications and medical conditions, so that in an emergency, the Vida Alarms operator can pass that data on to the first responders. Fire, Police or Ambulance personnel are briefed so that they can be effective upon arrival.

“Another thing that a lot of people don’t realize, is that Mexican law is very different when it comes to emergency personnel being allowed access to private property. That can be a problem if our client has fallen, or can’t speak for themselves. Part of our intake process here at Vida Alarms addresses such issues, so that if and when an emergency should occur, our clients get the services they need. Our operators also make contact with the friends and family they want us to reach.”

Interested persons can call Vida Alarms at 376-766-3500 , visit the company website at, or email sales@VidaAlarms.Com. If you’re in Ajijic, stop by the Vida Alarms showroom and offices, located at Donato Guerra 18 (across from La Nueva Posada).

An excellent idea for a new business in México. Had a friend, an 85-year-old expat, who lived in Mazatlán for awhile, then moved to Morelia, had one of these, the sad news that he not only died alone, but wasn't even found for several days, might not have happened. This was very recent:

Joe Spira, D.E.P.

It's something that all of us who live alone, or without close Mexican family, should consider.
