Are you okay?
The Are You Okay Program is a way for those who are homebound, physically incapacitated, or otherwise unable to be in regular contact with someone to help in the event of an emergency. The Cochise County Sheriff’s Department is now accepting registration forms.
Once a resident is added to the list, a telephone call will be made to them at their requested interval such as once a day, twice a week and etcetera. If there is no answer after several tries, then a point of contact will be requested to check on the subscriber. If there is no POC available, then a law enforcement officer will be sent to check on them.
The registration forms are available through the Sheriff’s Office, 432.9500 or at www.cochise.az.gov.
