Great Call recently announced a new personal security service that can be added to its Jitterbug phones and monthly plans. The 5Star system works similar to 911, but instead connects subscribers to a Great Call representative who will have immediate access to the user's health profile, relatives' contact details, local hospitals and doctors. If the event requires 911 emergency services, the Great Call operator call reach 911 dispatch and provide the first responders with information about the subscriber and their situation. Great Call can share health information with 911, as well as logistics such as where the customer's spare key might be located in the event that the front door is locked and can't be opened by the subscriber. The service costs $14.99 per month and will be available to Great all's Jitterbug phones starting in February.
