“Are you Okay?” provides safety and security for elderly people living alone. Each morning, 365 days a year, an officer from the Norfolk County Sheriff’s Office places a phone call to check on the wellbeing of people in this free-of-charge program. If they fail to answer or indicate they need emergency aid, the officer summons help immediately. The sheriff also serves as the statewide coordinator for Project Lifesaver, which joined forces in 2009 with LoJack SafetyNet to protect people with Alzheimer’s disease, autism and other afflictions whose sufferers tend to wander away from home and become lost.
Fallon Ambulance Service became an integral partner with the Norfolk County Sheriff’s office in administering the program in 2009. Today, we continue proudly provide communication support and critical infrastructure for this valuable, community-centered program.
