An easy way to stay safe.

The Community Alarm Service is a 24-hour, seven days a week service operated by Milton Keynes City Council. Our service provides personal alarms as well as sensors to help vulnerable adults who are in distress or in need of emergency care.  

If you have fallen, become unwell, have a home emergency or are at risk from abuse - one of our staff can be with you, usually within 45 minutes from the moment you make the call, or we detect you need help.
