Seniors Fire Safety
Older and Wiser: A fire safety education program for older adults
Statistics show that adults over age 65 are at the highest risk of being killed or injured in a fire. To address this serious problem, the Ontario Fire Marshal’s Public Fire Safety Council developed Older & Wiser, a fire safety program specifically for older adults. The program is designed to be delivered by municipal fire departments with the assistance of community groups, home support workers, the media, and friends and families of older adults.
Remembering When: A fire and fall prevention program for older adults
People 65 and older are twice as likely to be killed or injured by fires and falls than the population at large. Designed for a multicultural audience, Remembering When is a complete, step-by-step program that teaches life-saving lessons to this high-risk group. It includes lesson plans, brochures, fact sheets, game cards, and more!
