GREAT BAY – UTS donated 5 Alcatel One Touch 282 devices to the White and Yellow Cross foundation for use by its residents. “These phones have specific features that are useful for users whom may have trouble with a smaller, more elaborate phone,” says UTS Marketing and Communications Officer Ivy Lambert. “The device has very large keys and an easy to read display, but the star feature is really the Panic button. With the push of one button it will instantly SMS and call up to 4 pre-programmed numbers to notify caregivers and family members that the user is in distress.”

The phones will be given to some residents of the St. Maarten Home; some will also go to elderly persons that are living in their own home, but are under the care of the White and Yellow Cross. “We are very happy with these devices and we already know exactly which residents and patients would appreciate it. It will enable them to stay in contact with their loved ones more easily and it also gives family an extra sense of security to know that their loved one is able to send a distress signal if needed,” states White and Yellow Cross Operations Manager Bregje Boetekees (not pictured).

“These devices are currently available at our UTS stores. We purposely set the price at a reasonable $62 so that it remains affordable for many,” says UTS Commercial Manager Christina Sprock “The decision to invest in safety is something we feel should not weigh heavily on your budget. We hope that this device will help families stay in touch and also offer them peace of mind when it comes to the safety of their loved ones.”

“With the holiday season coming up, this device is actually a perfect gift for children to give to their parents. You get to stay in touch more easily and the bonus for all is the added peace of mind,” Ivy Lambert said. The UTS contact center can be reached at 1 721 542 0101 for additional information about the Alcatel One Touch 282.
