Rockwood to look in on elderly

-A A +A

Officials shaken by hypothermia death

By Cindy Simpson

The Rockwood community was devastated by the hypothermia death of resident Ray Knight during a recent cold snap.

Officials are keen to try out a new way to help prevent such tragedies in the future.

Rockwood Police Chief Danny Wright and Fire Chief Mike Wertz have come up with a program they call R U Safe, which allows needy elderly to be referred to the city for wellness checks during extreme weather.

They hope to build a database of all those who might need looking in on.
