Fall Alert Your Guide to Medical Alerts

Knowing when to test fall alert systems

by admin on August 11, 2012

I’m sure you know that the majority of fall alert companies out there ask you to test their systems regularly. Most that I am familiar with ask you to do it about once a month. There are special circumstances when you may need to test your fall alert systems in between your monthly test though… Anytime you unplug your system and plug it back in or relocate the system in your home it is so very important to test the connections. Without testing you just don’t know if one of the phone cords is loose in the jack or if the new phone jack you plugged it into is even working. As long as you can press your fall alert button and speak to an operator over your speaker, it means that everything is plugged in and working correctly for you. Likewise if your power goes out in the home for a prolonged period of time, it is important to test when the power comes back on. In some cases, power surges and even being without power can disrupt the programming of fall alert systems. While your system is probably still working just fine or while you probably did plug everything in correctly, it is still a great idea to be thorough and test!
