“Are You OK?®” Service Expands to Arcata Fire District Residents
“Are You OK?®” is a telephone reassurance service to assist members of our community who live alone, and offers regular contact and peace of mind for program subscribers.
Humboldt Senior Resource Center (HSRC) has collaborated with the Arcata Fire District (AFD) and City Ambulance to now offer the “Are You OK?” program to residents in the AFD service area, which includes Arcata, Bayside, Jacoby Creek, Manila, and McKinleyville. The “Are You OK?” program is also available to residents in the greater Eureka area served by Humboldt Bay Fire.
The program provides subscribers with daily calls at a pre-arranged times. If the subscriber does not answer, it triggers steps that, if necessary, can lead to a welfare check provided by local fire district personnel.
