According to the press release there is a $200 early termination fee.
So buy it on a plan when you need it and then cancel and pay the $200 if it's less than the number of months remaining multiplied by the plan fee. Once cancelled you should still be able to access 000 or 112 (but I'd confirm that before relying on it).
The thing to watch out for would be a reactivation fee that you may have to pay to rejoin the network after cancelling. Ask them up front and it may work out much cheaper than hiring.
