Guardian Angels are among us — and they are in the form of pendants.

These Guardian Angel pendants are courtesy of the Town of Payson, the Payson Police Department and the Payson Fire Department.

For people who live alone, these potentially life-saving pendants are:

• Free

• Installed through an existing phone line

• Water resistant so they can be worn in the shower or bath

• Easy to operate — just push to alert up to four friends or neighbors that you need help.

This is not a monitoring service, only the people you alert can hear you and only when you push the help button.

If you believe this service would be useful to you or someone you love, contact the police or fire departments at 928-474-5242, ext. 300 for an application.

This program is different from the property check service offered by the Payson Police Department. Call it at 928-474-5242, ext. 309 for details.
