How does the program work?
At a time you designate, a computer automatically dials your number and waits for an answer. When you answer the telephone, you will hear a message. Once you speak, the computer assumes you are OK and the call is completed.
Will I be speaking to a live person?
No. When you answer, the prerecorded message will play. A person in the Sheriff's Office will monitor all responses.
What if I can't answer the telephone immediately?
The computer will redial your number. If you do not respond to the second call, an alarm goes off and the dispatcher will telephone whomever you designated as a contact person.
What happens if the contact person can't be reached?
A Deputy from the Catawba County Sheriff's Office will be dispatched to check on you.
How much does the program cost?
It is FREE to older adults, anyone who is disabled, handicapped or homebound, residing in Catawba County.
