Plerts is a personal alert service focused on accessibility, real-time location, and privacy for medical and personal safety.

Austin, TX (PRWEB) April 22, 2010 -- Plerts, Inc. is proud to announce the release of Plerts for the iPhone, iPod Touch, and Facebook app platforms. Plerts is a personal alert service focused on accessibility, real-time location, and privacy for medical and personal safety. Plerts is built around the concept of a “social safety net” which is a customized list of contacts that will simultaneously receive an emergency alert via email, SMS, or even over Facebook and/or Twitter.

"When it comes to personal safety, Plerts puts privacy at the forefront," said Plerts co-founder, Colin Anawaty. "Nobody ever has to know where you are or what you’re doing. Our service provides peace of mind when living alone with medical conditions, going on an internet date, making an exchange on Craigslist, or traveling the world." A user's actions and location are kept completely private unless an accident happens and they fail to check back in. Only at this point is an emergency alert sent with their real-time location and personal information to their pre-selected social safety net, regardless of what may happen to them or their device.

Originally designed for medical alerts and patient care, Plerts offers a highly-accessible communication platform to securely send periodic updates and vitals to off-site care providers while assuring a reliable safety net is in place should one become unresponsive due to adverse drug or diabetic reactions. Plerts also offers a one-touch medical life alert service for free that works virtually anywhere internet or mobile coverage is available.
