S.A.F.E. Program



The Town of Mount Pleasant is offering a Senior Awareness for Everyone (S.A.F.E.) program to assist senior citizens and those with special needs.  S.A.F.E. is a voluntary program for eligible citizens living in the town who may not have family or friends nearby who can check on them on a regular basis. The S.A.F.E. program allows the police and fire departments to document names of eligible citizens, where they reside, important contact information, and medical information for use during emergency responses. Police personnel may be assigned to check on these citizens to see if they require any special assistance.

Emergency contact information is vital in the event a citizen becomes ill and must be transported to the hospital. The designated contact person can be notified so that important medical information can be retrieved.


Who Is This For?

Senior citizens age 60 and older
Those who are 55 and retired
Any disabled citizen

To register for this service, follow the link below. Once we have your information, a representative of the department will contact you regarding your enrollment.
