The Williams County Department of Aging is asking for seniors’ assistance in ensuring their records are up to date. Please update your personal contact information. If you no longer have a landline phone and use only a wireless phone, please make sure you have the correct number on file. This especially assists the home delivery drivers.
Alert86 is an emergency and non-emergency notification response program. When the website is fully functional, a representative from the Emergency Management Agency will come to each senior center site to explain the program and assist seniors in signing up for the program. The program allows seniors to choose the notifications they desire to receive.
