The national program called "AWARE," or abused women's active response emergency, uses a small device, but it could mean the difference between life and death for someone threatened by domestic violence. ADT Security is the company the created and promotes the program.
Domestic abuse survivor Elissa Spivey says the sheer nature of the pendant makes it valuable in the face of danger, "The ability to be near it and the time and quickness that it operates. I had several experiences where i could get to a phone but the perpetrator hung up the phone."
ADT Security security will install the system free of charge and provide pendants for as long as victims need it. For more information visit http://www.adt.com/adt/about_adt/adt_in_our_communities/aware/
