Recent events got me thinking again about something that I do think about a lot. There are many Pinecammers and neighbors that live alone up here.

I have no idea if everyone has a support system in place with friends, family, and/or neighbors to keep an eye out. This would also be beneficial for those with pets.
It may be a good idea to set something like that up for us here. I would be willing to keep a list of names, addresses, emails, emergency contact information, and phone numbers for folks and maybe we could start some kind of buddy system to check in on one another, especially if someone has health issue concerns. I have plenty of time on my hands with my surgery recovery and could set something up if folks were interested. I was even thinking of it laid out on a map so we could see how close folks are to us to help. I understand that there is a balance of privacy with the security of a buddy system.

Let's start talking about it and maybe we can come up with a structure that makes it easy for us to help one another.

1/25/2020 UPDATE - HERE IS PROCESS


This process can be FULL TIME or PART TIME with defined start and end dates for Check In.

A buddy can decide if they want to do this every day (very simple process) or only when they are sick or have a surgery or otherwise feel a need to be checked in on. They will contact their Buddy and let them know which process works best for them.

Currently we have Buddies of each category Full time and Part time. We want to make this easy for folks to participate in.

Basically, we pair up and communicate rest of our details to one another for checking in on one another.

Here are the folks involved to make this work seamlessly

Buddy – person needing to be checked on
Check-In Buddy – person responsible for contacting sheriff and emergency contact
Emergency Contact – person the Buddy has identified to be responsible to taking care of Buddy’s pet(s) and has access to house.

ACTIONS NEEDED TO BEGIN THE PROCESS
A person wanting to participate as a Buddy needs to contact me via email at angela@sanderssound.com and let me know. I will contact the folks that have volunteered to be a Check-In Buddy and get them paired up and “introduced” via email.


Buddy needs to get the information to their Check-In Buddy.
1. Full name
2. Pinecam name
3. Phone number
4. Email address
5. Home address
6. Pets (type and names) if they have pets
7. Emergency contact name and number

PROCESS
1. Buddy sends email to Check-In Buddy with subject ‘Checking In – All OK’ sent by 4pm each day.
2. If the Check-In Buddy doesn’t get the email, they call and make sure things are OK and the email was just forgotten.
3. If they don’t get an answer, they call the sheriff and give them the address for welfare check.
4. Once Check-In Buddy hears back from Sheriff, then they may need to call their Buddy’s emergency contact so they can come get pets.

It should be by request after the potential beneficiary has been notified. We don't want an invasion of privacy.

This sounds like a great idea for our community. If I can do anything here in Pinecam to facilitate this, let me know.

Having a section for our beloved furry family members is very important as you mentioned Angela. For example, my Goldens were adopted from Golden Retriever Rescue of the Rockies. It is to them, my fur babies need to return in the event something happens to me. So a section in the Welfare Check Support System information would be wonderful.

thank you!
I guess we need to get some input from members and get started. I just heard from someone who had a check in system with a friend when they were alone of sending a message through the shout box each morning. That could work if everyone was on board. I could check it against the contact/address/buddy list and initiate a wellness check if missed. or any ideas of how to do this are welcome.
Waiting for others to see this and give input as to how they think it could work.

The Neighbors Helping Neighbors forum is the perfect place to coordinate this! Ang, could you also start a post there?
