Fire and Fall Prevention Training - MLK Day of Service

Attend this fire and fall safety seminar for senior members and their families. It is nationally accredited and created by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA).
The Presentation: The NFPA has developed 16 key fire and fall safety messages which comprise the core of the “Remembering When” presentation. Community members who attend these presentations are encouraged to discuss and share their personal experiences with aging, fire, and falls.
Optional Home Visit: Community members may schedule a home visit at the presentation. A home visit is done by both a Risk Reduction Educator and Firefighter within the department. When a community member who is 65 years of age or older requests a home visit, the team will take a small tour of the house and discuss fire or fall risks that may be present in the home. We do not enforce any changes, but we may make suggestions for a safer environment. 
Smoke Alarm Installation: As a part of this program, HCDFRS offers free smoke alarm installations to those in our aging community who are in need.
