Are you OK? (R.U.O.K.)

The RUOK program is a computer system that is setup to call RUOK customers at designated times, of their choosing, every day to check if they are okay.

When the system dials a customer’s number and the customer picks the line up, the system plays a message for them and logs the call answered. If the customer does not answer the call, the system will make a second attempt to call them and if the call is still unanswered it sounds an alert and a police officer is dispatched to the customer’s residence to check on them and ensure that they are okay.

If you are interested in learning more about the program or want to enroll in RUOK, please call Barbara Morlock at (252) 672-4100.
