YOU OK? PROGRAM
"Are You O.K.?" program is a free
computerized telephone calling system service provided
by Hanson Police, Hanson Senior Center and the Plymouth
County Sheriff's Department and is designed for older
adults, disabled persons and shut-ins who live alone.
How it works...
The Plymouth County Sheriff's Department has a computer
that makes the telephone call to individual homes at
a certain time of the day(s). If the phone is not picked
up or is busy, then the computer will call back in fifteen
minutes. If the phone is not picked up the second
time or is st1l1 busy, then the Hanson Police Department
is dispatched immediately. This service is designed
to make the call(s) at the same time each day. If an
individual goes on vacation, or to a doctor's appointment
they can stop the call(s) as long as necessary. To begin
this service you can fill out an application or may
make a referral to the Hanson Multi-Service Senior Center
at (781) 293-2683 or contact Officer Brian
Watson at the police department (781) 293-4625.
This is a Free service!
"Are You O.K.?" could save your life or the
life of your loved one.
The Are You O.K? Program is offered in partnership with
the Hanson Police Department, the Hanson Multi-Service
Senior Center and the Plymouth County Sheriff's Department.
