Personal alarms

Hi there, is it common to use a personal alarm system and if so, what are the preferred ones please? Are there any particular features to look out for?

I think it’s a great idea to have an alarm - I have one I got via Amazon. (the Police handed them out as ‘attack alarms + I gave it to my friend so I replaced it).


what is it you want an alarm for? My local council have an alarm system, with a little dongle that I wear round my neck. If I have a fall, I press a button on the dongle which auto-dials a team at any time of day or night, and they send a couple people round to help me backk

I have an Apple Watch. It’s synched to my Apple phone and iPad, so has all my contacts on there. I can call my friends who are my emergency contacts. If they’re not available, I can call 999.
