The service is used with a landline phone. With the push of a button, customers are connected to a central call center in Maine. Jennifer Maskala, LiveSAFE manager, says, “They can call one of their responders on the list to come over and help them – a neighbor, a friend, a relative to come help them. Or if it’s an emergency we can call dispatch and they can dispatch either the fire department, police or an ambulance.”To find out more about the service and if you’re eligible for a discount, contact Rosscare LiveSAFE at 973-7094.
