The North Dakota 9-1-1 Association in cooperation with local Public Safety Answering Points, is requesting that any person using or contracting for the use of in home or mobile medical alert devices, please keep your vendor updated whenever you change your address.

In communications throughout the state, we have found that all vendors we were able to contact have put the updating of your place of residence as the responsibility of the owner/lessee of the devices. In cases happening in North Dakota, when Medical Assistance Devices were used, the vendor has old information on file and that is the address that emergency assistance is dispatched to, wasting precious moments.
