Tell Your Michigan State Reps to Vote NO on Senate Bill 636

The Michigan House may vote as soon as TUESDAY on legislation to phase out landline telephone service within three years. 

Please call 1-888-232-6829 to urge your State Representative to vote NO on Senate Bill 636!
  • Do you or someone in your family use a landline for medical monitoring of a pacemaker, implantable cardiac defibrillator, medical alert or other life saving device?
  • Do you have a home security system that relies on a landline service?
  • Do you know what you or your loved ones would do to communicate without a landline when the power goes out?

Don't eliminate landline phone service!

Call 1-888-232-6829 today.

Urge Your State Representative to Vote NO on Senate Bill 636!
Telephone service is a basic necessity, particularly for older adults, who are more likely than any other age group to rely on their landlines not only for social contact, but to preserve health and safety. In a recent unscientific opinion poll of 1300 AARP members and others, 85% of respondents told us they currently have a landline service, and 97% are opposed to SB 636.

Now is the time to fight to ensure that AARP members and all Michigan families have reliable, affordable telephone service they can count on, especially during extreme weather or other emergencies.

Senate Bill 636 puts reliable phone service at risk for all Michigan consumers. AARP embraces the use of new technology. But when it comes to replacing reliable, affordable landline service, any new technology must be as good or better than the current service, and wireless service in particular does not currently meet that standard. Despite changes made by the Senate to improve the bill somewhat last week, SB 636 would still leave consumers - and particularly seniors - at risk.

Please call 1-888-232-6829 and urge your State Representative to vote no on Senate Bill 636!

Super Bowl-like Power Outage Will Never Happen at Our Monitoring Station

It's a few days after the Super Bowl and everyone is still talking about the power outage that delayed the big game for 34 minutes. At Guardian Medical Monitoring, an occurrence like this would never happen.  Recently installed generators means that our Monitoring Station will never lose power!


If communication were to be lost at our UL/FM listed Central Monitoring Station, Guardian has the ability to transfer all systems to one of two redundant monitoring stations. One backup station is located adjacent to our National Headquarters in Michigan and the second is in our Toledo, Ohio office. In an emergency, Guardian is prepared to make sure our monitoring service is never interrupted. Whether you are a 49ers fan or a Ravens fan, all can agree; at the most critical moment in your life, you shouldn't be left in the dark.
