STAR Helps Safeguard Township Residents

The STAR Program -- short for Safeguarding Township Adult Residents -- helps keep seniors and at-risk residents safe, assists them in times of emergency, and connects them to existing services when needed. Township residents who sign up for STAR can benefit from these services:

  • Emergency Contacts – When people live alone, it may not be clear who to contact. Residents in the STAR Program provide their emergency contacts in advance so that families can connect quickly with each other in an emergency.Star
  • Front Door Lock Boxes – First responders can gain entry more quickly, and with less damage to the home, if residents have a lock box on the front door with a key inside. Residents can order the boxes through the STAR Program for $23 and the STAR program will save the lock box code so that it's available to first responders.
  • Periodic Visits -- The STAR Program coordinator makes periodic visits to check on the wellbeing of participants.
