Happy 1st Birthday to Herts Bernie, our portable pendant with GPS! One year ago you joined the Herts Careline family of independent living solutions, and since then you have been supporting and providing reassurance to those who wear you when they're venturing out and about.

On this special day we'd like to thank you for keeping those in your care active, independent and secure. In the event of an emergency, they know they can raise an alert for help to be sent to our 24/7 control room by a simple press of your emergency SOS button.

As you're GPS equipped, you show us their location which means help will be on the way very quickly. You're ideal for older people, those with health conditions and for people who tend to journey alone. You provide the wearer and their loved ones with peace of mind and reassurance knowing you can always be there for them whenever they need you.

To mark your Birthday, we're spreading the word about your good work by sharing your video and letting people know they can call 0300 999 2 999 or visit to see how you can bring safety and independence to their loved ones as well.
