FAQS:

Question: What exactly is the Emergency Call Cord?
Answer: There is a pull cord in each bathroom at Carroll Heights which acts as a BUDDY system. It will sound a bell on the floor you are on along with a light that will turn on above your apt door. Other tenants will see that you need help and call 9-1-1 or call Hillview. A Hillview nurse will also call 9-1-1 as they are not able to perform any medical care. They will stay with you and comfort you until help arrives.
