button provides immediate 24/7 access to trained staff and a quick response to any emergency; you or your family are never
alone when you need help. For about a dollar a day, you get peace of mind and security. You're not required to pay an installation fee, buy any equipment or make a long-term commitment.
is made possible through the collaboration of EMHS
members – Rosscare
and The Aroostook Medical Center
. Through partnerships within our system, we provide you with safe and affordable technology so people of all ages can enjoy living safely and independently in their own homes.

The service is ideal for a variety of people including seniors, adults and children with disabilities, and those with short-term needs. Besides medical attention, some use LiveSAFE to summon help if they are alarmed about strange or disturbing noises, trespassers intruding or if they are nervous and need to speak with someone about their concerns. One subscriber told us she pushed her button when she had a chimney fire, and the firemen quickly arrived and extinguished the fire before it became it became extensive. In the winter time, when many Mainers light their fireplaces or use space heaters to stay warm, LiveSAFE subscribers can be assured they can quickly summon help if they experience a fire emergency. A Maine based operator is available 24-hours a day, 365 days a year to provide assistance. Furthermore, subscribers can answer their ringing home phone by pressing the LiveSAFE button that they wear, thus preventing a potential fall from rushing to get the phone.
For questions, call us at 207-973-7080 or toll free at 1-877-880-7677.

"We had an experience with a chimney fire. Without your expert help we could have had an extensive fire. You called the fire department and it was extinguished promptly. Thank you very much."
"I would like to thank LiveSAFE for their service. I have seizures and have had to use LiveSAFE to call for help. If it wasn’t for LiveSAFE, I would not have had the help to take me to the hospital and this might have cost me my life."
"I am a diabetic and having LiveSAFE makes me feel safe. When my blood sugar levels fluctuate and I need help quick, I know I can depend on LiveSAFE."
"I appreciate the secure feeling I get, especially at night. Even though I have relatives within a few miles, they do not answer their phones always and sometimes “speed is of the essence” so I feel safe with my personal emergency “help” button which I carry with me."
"…At the push of a button the ambulance was there in seconds. It is a wonderful service."
"At 2:30 am, I fell in the bathroom and managed to drag myself to the bedroom. I was not able to get up and get help. After this situation, a friend told me about LiveSAFE. I have told two or three others about LiveSAFE since then."
