Are You O.K. FAQ's
What is Are You O.K. (RUOK)?
A computer located in the 911 Emergency Dispatch Center calls an elderly or home bound individual of any age on a daily basis to ensure that they are O.K.
How does the program work?
At a time you designate, the computer will automatically dial your number and wait for an answer. When you pick up the telephone you will hear a brief message. Once you speak, the computer assumes you are O.K. and the call is completed.
Will I be speaking to a live person?
No. A pre-recorded message will play when you answer the phone.
What if I can't answer the telephone immediately?
The computer will redial your number. If you do not respond to the second call, an alarm goes off and the dispatcher will telephone whomever you have designated as contact person who has a key to your house or apartment.
What happens if the contact people can't be reached?
The East Point Police department will go to your residence to check on your well-being.
