Are You O.K.? Program
If you are a resident in the Village of Pemberville and are a senior citizen, disabled, or just feel that you would benefit from daily contact with someone, “Are You O.K.?” is for you. “Are You O.K.?” is a simple, effective telephone reassurance system that contacts you, the subscriber, each day at the same time. When you answer the phone, the system accepts the call and moves on to the next subscriber. If you don’t answer the phone, the system will automatically call you back a short time later. If you still don’t answer, an alert is issued and the Pemberville Police will follow up. The system is designed to help us stay in touch with our senior citizens who are living alone. Many adult children of seniors already telephone their parents daily to check on their well being. this system would do that for them, but we don’t go on vacation or forget. But if you do go on vacation, ust call the police department before you leave and inform us of the dates you will be gone. We will not call again until you return.
“Are You O.K.?” is not intended to replace any existing health monitors, but it would not be a problem to use both systems. We do not want you to stop the service provided by the “Lifeline” system so you may sign up for “Are You O.K.?”. “Are You O.K.?” is a totally free service offered to Pemberville residents. There is no cost at any time to any subscriber. Sign up by calling the Pemberville Police Department at (419) 287-3250 or Wood County Sherriff Deputy Brianne Cooper at 419-354-9005

This system that alerts you to problems on your street, town or countywide. Storms, floods, CoVid19 announcements all can come directly to you. It’s free and easy and now would be a good time to add the CodeRED app to your phone or home computer. Information for that can be found at

Drug Take Back Box
Prescription drug take-back boxes provide a place where unused prescription drugs can be safely disposed. These permanent boxes prevent prescription and over-the-counter medications from getting into the hands of children and into the waterways. They make sure they are disposed of in a safe, environmentally-friendly manner. This is located in the lobby of our station.
