Morning Call Network
The Fishers Police Department has created a service for seniors living in the Fishers community that is a telephone reassurance program called the Morning Call Network. This program provides a unique service to those senior citizens who live alone, are disabled, or homebound. It is a telephone system designed to provide senior citizens with a daily telephone call. This telephone call lets them know that someone is checking on them and that someone cares. The concept is simple:
  1. Senior citizens residing or visiting Fishers must complete all enrollment/registration forms to become a member.
  2. Once the forms are complete, a volunteer will place a call to each person enrolled, at the time and days of their choosing (between 8 and 11 a.m.).
  3. When the telephone is answered, the volunteer will verify the well-being of the subscriber. If the volunteer receives a busy signal, they will automatically retry the number at specified intervals.
  4. If no answer is received, alert procedures will go into effect. The emergency contact person and/or any designated medical emergency company contacts will be called and asked to check on the person.
  5. If the emergency contacts are unsuccessful, the Fishers Police Department dispatch number will be called to request a patrol officer to check on the senior at the address listed on the enrollment form.

Calls may be suspended for periods of time for vacations or certain days at the discretion of the senior; however, notification of any suspension must be provided to the Fishers Police Department morning call representative at least 48 hours prior to the suspension period. Failure to do so may result in a termination of the enrollment contract and services. The name and contact number of your personal representative will be provided to each senior upon enrollment.

Enrollment
The Fishers Police Department Morning Call Network program is free and may include additional services as the program grows. Any expansion or change in services will be provided to all enrolled seniors.

To enroll, call the Fishers Police Department and speak with Sgt. Tom Weger at 317-595-3300. A volunteer will set up an appointment and come to your home at your convenience. They will answer all of your questions and assist you in completing the necessary forms. If you know of a group of seniors interested in enrolling, we will gladly set up an appointment to make a presentation at your location.
