Raytown Police Activates H.E.A.R. Program Due to Cold Temperature
Raytown, MO – The Raytown Police activated the H.E.A.R. Program Monday, March 3, 2014, in response to the extremely cold temperature. H.E.A.R. is the Health Emergency Assistance Registry, with the purpose of providing assistance to at-risk residents, who are registered in the program, during times of weather emergencies (including extreme temperatures, hot or cold, and storms.)
The service is free to qualifying Raytown residents, which could include the disabled, elderly and frail, or those relying on a health device powered by electricity.
During times of weather emergencies, including extreme temperatures and storms, the Raytown Police will activate the program. Department members will try to make contact with those registered in the program, either by phone or at their residence, to check their welfare and offer any assistance.
Anyone wishing to enroll in the H.E.A.R. Program must first complete an application. Applications may be obtained in person at Police Headquarters, by phone request at 816-737-6124, or online, at http://photos.raytownpolice.org/H.E.A.R.%20Brochure.pdf.
