A mobile personal emergency response system.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.      A little key chain sized gadget called the 5Star Emergency Responder with a single button from GreatCall can be a life saver…or it can just give you peace of mind.   CEO David Inns…

“You hit that button, you’re connect to an emergency response representative , a highly trained individual who can help you with any situation.  So if you’re walking alone to your car in a dark parking lot as a mature woman, a perfect example where you might want to get somebody on the line.  Or if you’re a child and get separated from your parents, you hit that button, our agents have GPS capability so they can locate you.  They can then conference in friends and family.”
