Personal alarm can mean safety first

Farms are dangerous places. Even the simplest of tasks could prove lethal. And a shrinking farm work force means that more people work in isolation.

Welcome help comes in the form of a new personal alarm system that uses a combination of GPS tracking and GSM mobile phone technology to provide a link between the user and a constantly manned call centre.
