Are You OK? Program

Vial of Life

The RUOK program allows seniors, disabled and home bound individuals to register for a daily computer generated call to verify their safety and welfare. The registrant chooses and provides the time of day to be called and an emergency contact. If a registrant fails to answer two attempted calls, a public safety dispatcher will send a police officer to check on the individual.

Vial of Life is a free program that allows individuals to have their medical information ready in their home for emergency personnel to reference during an emergency. This program is used to provide the patient’s medical information when a patient is not able to speak or remember this information.

Individuals interested in registering for this service, can call the Tracy Police Department at 831-6614.

Vial of Life is available through the Tracy Fire Department and at the Lolly Hansen Senior Center. For more information call 831-6700.
