Do you live alone? Do you live an isolated life? Does your family live in a distant community? Would you like to have someone check on you periodically just to be sure you are doing well?
The Stallion Springs Community Service Unit, citizen volunteers working with the police department are organizing a program of contact and caring to ensure the safety of our residents who are alone and would appreciate having some one check on them and their wellbeing.
Calls would be to individuals on a prearranged basis. If a problem is detected the appropriate help would be dispatched. This is a totally volunteer program. If you are interested in this program contact the CSD and someone will follow up with you.
