The City of Bay Village has a safety check program that is available to our seniors upon request.

Each day around 8:30 a.m., a dispatcher from the Bay Village Police Department will call the resident to ask “Are you okay?” If the person fails to answer the phone, two additional attempts will be made at five minute intervals. If no one answers after the third attempt, the emergency contact on the application form will be contacted and asked if there is any reason the person would not be answering the phone. After all avenues are exhausted, a police officer will then go to the home to investigate.

Bay Village also offers residents who subscribe to the Community Care Monitor or a Lifeline program a FREE lock box, which allows City emergency personnel quicker access to the home. Emergency personnel will not have to break down doors or windows to gain access to the home.
