The City of Webster first responders are highly trained and eager to help all residents in need. But, if you don’t have a way of contacting 9-1-1, they won’t know you need help. 

Each year more than 5,000 calls are made using Life Alert, saving a life from a potential catastrophe every ten minutes. If you are home alone and you fall, and you can’t get up, the Life Alert emergency pendant that you wear will get you in contact with emergency services and give you the assistance you need. 

The pendants are waterproof, keeping you safe even in the shower, and can work up to an 800-foot vicinity around your home. The battery can even last up to seven years.The service gives families peace of mind and allows seniors to live alone without ever being alone.

The Webster Fire Department pays for 100 percent of the service for anyone who requests it. Visit the Webster Fire Department at 18300 Highway 3 or call 281.316.3742 to apply. After completing an application, it takes around two weeks for ADT to come to your home and set it up. You must be a Webster resident to receive this service.

“It’s a great service for anyone who needs it,” said Webster Fire Chief Patrick Shipp. “We have had it activated a few times, and we are more than happy to expand the program.”
