Be prepared for any situation.
5Star Agents are trained to provide assistance for a wide variety of personal safety and security situations, and only you can decide when it’s time to call for help. 5Star is designed for anyone who feels their safety is being compromised or threatened, or could use some professional help in determining the appropriate course of action, especially if they’re not sure if they should call 9-1-1. Maybe you’re walking alone at night and suddenly you get the feeling that you’re being followed. It could be your child who calls 5Star, because he or she is lost or feels unsafe at school. There may also come a time when you or your parents need immediate medical attention. No matter what the situation, 5Star is standing by 24 hours a day, seven days a week, ready to respond.
The following are just some of the many situations where you or your family might use 5Star:
