Did you know that more than 200,000 children 14 years of age and younger are treated in hospital emergency rooms across the United States. Most accidents, nearly 70%, occur on public playgrounds? (Centers for Disease Control).

Protecting the young as well as the elderly is often seen as one of the most important aspects of security. We know that anyone who routinely has the young and the elderly under their care, may they be a business owner, a school principal or a nurse home administrator, only want the best emergency services for them. Here at Kings III, we make sure that the emergency phones we provide our clients are accessible, dependable, and affordable, so that no child or senior is in danger due to lack of access to a help phone.

Protecting Children

Our emergency phones can reassure parents everywhere. These phones can be set up in an apartment complex parking lot or garage, or on a school campus to give children a designated area to go to when in trouble. This way, children can use an emergency phone to get help if they are in an unfamiliar location. Our help phones are very simple to operate and do not require the user to dial a specific number or even pick up a handset. All a child has to do is press the emergency call button. Because the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) specifically states that all emergency phones must be accessible to those in wheelchairs, the call buttons are situated low enough that most children can reach them.

Another emergency phone service we offer is pool phones. These phones are located near swimming pools and provide emergency help in the event a child falls into the deep end of the pool or begins to drown. Having some way of contacting help is especially important if there is no lifeguard on duty and if children are being supervised by teens, not adults.

Protecting the Elderly

The elderly are just as much at risk as the young, which is why they can rely on emergency phones in times of need. These phones are placed around nursing homes, hospitals, and other medical facilities in addition to parks, and at ATMs. If an elderly person falls or is in need of emergency medical attention, it is faster to use one of these help phones than it is to call 911. This is because help phones transmit their location whenever a call is made, allowing emergency services to be dispatched right away. Most emergency phones, including our own, use speakers instead of handsets so that users do not have to be holding a phone when being told what to do to assist the person in need.

All emergency phones manufactured and installed by Kings III are done so with the aim of being accessible to everyone. We work to ensure those of all ages, including children and the elderly, have access to emergency services in any time of need. You can learn more about what we offer at www.kingsiii.com.
