Presentation of donated Home Alone Units to the Oracle volunteer group, including Jenine Mayer, Bob Elder, Mary-Claire and Pete Bernstein. Additional volunteers not available for the presentation are Sherry Ziegler, Judy Kalish, and Jill Caid. Thank you to this caring group of volunteers!

  Volunteers are much appreciated! Especially those who touch the lives of the vulnerable and those in need.

  In Pinal County we are lucky to have an organization called TRIAD, which is a collaboration among seniors, the Pinal County Attorney’s Office, Pinal County Sheriff’s Office, and Pinal County Police Departments. They work together to address and reduce crime against seniors and to improve the quality of life. The goal is to keep seniors safe in their own homes. One of the most important tools for this partnership is the Home Alone Unit (HAU), or Kit. This equipment works only with landline phones. Upon request, volunteers install this pendant system in the home that can be activated for an emergency call to 911 in case the person is unable to reach the telephone. 

  Since the Pinal County Attorney’s Office is unable to accept donations, Community Action Human Resources Agency or CAHRA, is acting as the fiscal agent.  Any donation made to the agency and earmarked for the Home Alone Program-Oracle Triad, will help purchase units for the Oracle area.  Although the home Alone Program is free, donations are gladly accepted.

  Here in Oracle, we are blessed with a dedicated group of volunteers who organize, install, and maintain these HAUs. We, at the Oracle Fire District (OFD), would like to recognize and thank these volunteers who take time out of their busy lives to help those in need. Thank you!

  Additionally, we received several donations towards the purchase of additional units, as funding for the program has been low. Holt Bodinson, of the Oracle Firewise Board, made a donation of $200 to purchase two units in the memory of his wife Ilse Bodinson. The Oracle Firewise Board then donated funds for a third unit, and the OFD donated funds for a fourth unit. Thank you, Holt and Firewise for helping this vital program!

  If you are interested in obtaining a Home Alone Unit, volunteering, or donating, please contact Tina Acosta at the Oracle Fire District at 520-896-2980.
