ARE YOU OK? PROGRAM
A free service for the seniors offered by the Baldwin County Sheriff's Office. Seniors or physically challenged citizens who live alone and wish to remain independent may be placed on our call list to receive a check-up call at their convenience.
What is it and How Does it Work...
Our system consists of a dedicated computer, telephone, printer and the Are You OK? software. The computer stores subscriber names, numbers and call times. The system is designed to run 24/7 and automatically cycles every day at midnight. The program automatically calls each person in the system at their pre-determined time. When Are You OK? hears a voice response on the phone it delivers a short pre-recorded message.
System operators may choose to monitor responses through the computer's speakers while attending to other duties. At the end of each calling day, a daily log of calls is automatically printed.
If the subscriber doesn't answer after a preset number of call attempts, an alert is given visually on the computer's monitor and audibly on the computer's speakers. A printout containing emergency information on the subscriber, including doctor's name and phone number, contact name and phone number, next of kin and brief medical history is generated.
