Checking the panic button pendants

Gibraltar Senior Citizens Association yesterday said it was starting a new campaign to check all the panic button pendants held by Gibraltar’s senior citizens.

“Given that the pendant which is part of the technology in the panic button programme has a limited life span of four years, the Association and the essential services involved, are concerned that some pendants may have reached the end of their life,” said a spokesman for the Gibraltar Senior Citizens Association.

The spokesman added that the Royal Gibraltar Police had volunteered to physically check the pendants from the elderly persons’ homes.

The Association is therefore requesting that those connected and their immediate relatives cooperate fully with the Royal Gibraltar Police.

“To ensure total security, these checks will be carried out by uniformed Royal Gibraltar Police officers,” added the spokesman.
