Seniors can borrow emergency cell phones


Carroll County senior citizens fearful of making even short trips because of possible emergency or security risks may borrow a cellular telephone with 911 capabilities.

The phones can be used to summon emergency help, but are not programmed to receive or make other calls, say authorities from the county's Bureau of Aging and state's attorney's office.

Phones can be checked out of the state's attorney's office in the courthouse annex, 55 N. Court St.

Information: Lynette Brewer of the Bureau of Aging, 410-848-4049, or Gary Cofflin of the state's attorney's office, 410-386-2671.
