Free safety devices available in Philadelphia

CENTER CITY - October 5, 2011

The Action Cam was there as Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter announced a partnership with LoJack SafetyNet.

The company will distribute 1,5,000 free SafetyNet devices with six months of service. The devices are intended to help track down those with medical conditions that may cause them to wander, including Alzheimer's disease patients, and people with autism and Down syndrome.

Those interested in enrolling in the program can go to or call 1-877-4-FIND-THEM (1-877-434-6384).

Users signed up for the "SafetyNet Race to Keep Safe" initiative will be provided with a SafetyNet Bracelet, batteries and straps along with instructions and information on the SafetyNet Service, all shipped at no cost. Once an order has been placed, the device will arrive within seven to ten business days.

The enrollment and monthly fees are waived for a full six months. If a user does not cancel their order before the six months is over, he will incur a $30 monthly charge. Payment plans are available.
