My father got taken to the hospital yesterday by ambulance. His defibrillator saved his life 12 times by shocking his heart. He called for the ambulance and crawled outside to wait on them. He is doing better but my sister and me are trying to figure out ways for him to get a hold of 911 if he can't make it to the house phone or if there is a power outage which happens a lot in his house during storms. Are there any options cheaper than Life Alert? We know that only works in the house so my sister is looking into maybe getting him a Straight Talk phone with a belt carrier incase he isn't at home. He is 70 and has been having heart problems more often each year. I live 14 hours away and have an 8 month old son so I can't rush off to be there to watch over him. My parents are separated so it is just my sister really looking after him.
