Are You O.K.? is a telephone reassurance program sponsored by the Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office for seniors or disabled citizens of Fort Bend County. This program makes a computer generated telephone call each day to the participant to check on their welfare. If the person called is OK, all that is necessary is for them to pick up the telephone and hang up. If for some reason they do not answer the telephone, the computer will try again at fifteen minute intervals. If the telephone is still unanswered after three calls, an alarm will sound in the Dispatch Center, the participant's application form will be printed, and a Deputy Sheriff will be dispatched to their residence to check on their welfare.
There is no charge for this service. You decide what time of the morning you want to be called. If you will be away from home at the agreed calling time, you can call the number given you to check out of the program until you will be back. You will have the reassurance that someone will know if you need help.
