Operation Safety Net
A telephone check-in program for seniors
Imagine living alone without a relative or friend to check on your well-being. Imagine slipping in the kitchen and not being able to reach the telephone to call for help.
With that in mind, the Fairborn Fire Department implemented a telephone check in program, Operation Safety Net, to keep in touch with seniors who live alone.
How do I Register?
To register for the program, call the Fairborn Fire Department at 754-3080.
During the registration process, you must provide a variety of emergency information including: your name, address, age, medication, family doctor, hospital preference, and next of kin. This information is strictly confidential and will only be used for an emergency.
How do I check in?
After the registration process, you will call 754-3111 daily during a designated time. The telephone is manned by Fire Department volunteers. A voice mail telephone feature allows you to leave a message if you’re leaving the house early.
When you check in, your call is recorded on a master list. At the end of the call in time, a volunteer will call you if you didn’t check in. If you can’t be reached by telephone, fire personnel will visit your home.
In case of a medical emergency, call 9-1-1 immediately.
