A daily telephone call safety check is available to the citizens of Camden County. This free service is for the homebound, the unassisted, the elderly, or any other citizen who would benefit from a daily check. Under the program, dispatchers call citizens at a daily designated time and speak to the person being called to make sure they are ok.


If no answer is received after the first call a second call is made shortly thereafter. If the second call elicits no response appropriate measures are taken to make contact with the person and determine their status. The flexible program is available countywide. During calendar year 2022 disptchers made 4,294 RUOK calls to local residents.


For anyone interested in registering for the "Are You OK?" program, a application is available under the resources tab.
