For Seniors

At age 65, older adults are twice as likely to be killed or injured by fires compared to the population at large. By age 75, that risk increases to three times that of the general population — and to four times by age 85.

For these reason and others, the National Fire Protection Association developed the "Remembering When" program. The program is designed around 16 key safety messages - 8 fire prevention and 8 fall prevention.

The American Red Cross Emergency Preparedness for Older Adults site contains excellent information and learning experiences designed specifically for the Senior population. Information and interaction ranges from identifying hazards, community response plans, training, etc. The site is also extremely helpful for caregivers.
