    a central coordination server linked to the first communications network;

    at least one resident life safety device associated with one of a specific location within an assisted care facility and a specific resident thereof, the at least one resident life safety device being connected to the central coordination server over the first communications network with an alarm signal generated upon detection of an alarm condition being transmitted to the central coordination server;

    a second communications network different from the first communications network and linked to the central coordination server; and

    a plurality of caregiver communications devices, each of the plurality of caregiver communications devices associated with one of a plurality of caregiver identities and connected to the central coordination server over the second communications network, each of the plurality of caregiver communications devices being receptive to an alarm notification generated by the central coordination server and receptive to a caregiver user input;

    wherein a caregiver acceptance response corresponding to a selectable response to the alarm notification and including an identification of a responding caregiver is generated from the caregiver user input for transmission to the central coordination server over the second communications network, the caregiver acceptance response indicating that the responding caregiver is responding to the alarm condition;

    wherein, in response to the caregiver acceptance response indicating that the responding caregiver is responding to the alarm condition, the plurality of caregiver communications devices are automatically updated to indicate that the responding caregiver is responding to the alarm condition and the alarm notification remains active on the plurality of caregiver communications devices;

    wherein, upon the alarm condition being cleared at the resident life safety device, the central coordination server updates the plurality of caregiver communications devices to indicate that the alarm condition is cleared;
