    Default Fire prevention for Senior Citizens

    My department has been asked to do a fire prevention program for Senior Citizens at a local church. Now, we do a fire prevention program every year in the local schools, but all of that information is geared towards children. I'm not stupid enough to think that we could use the same stuff to work will adults. Getting to my point. I would like to know if anyone could give me some information about a few good web sites to visit, or some tips from people who have had experience doing this sort of thing.


    Thank you.

    A good start would be taking a look at NFPA's "Remembering When." It is a fire and injury prevention program geared toward seniors. In addition, the AARP (AM Assoc. of Retired Persons) is a good resource and also produces some fire and injury prevention information/literature.

    Here is a link to ourweb site where we have some information on the topic: http://www.montgomerycountymd.gov/mc...on/senior.html

    Remember that this group might have some issues with hearing, sight and mobility. Hearing and sight might really come into play in your presentation.

    Hope this helps. Email or call if you require further. I am sure there are other ideas in this forum as there are several talented people that I have seen responding in these forums.

    Stay Safe!

    I am sorry. Forgot the other two links as you requested:

    http://www.aarp.org/

    http://www.nfpa.org/Education/Rememb...beringWhen.asp

    Also forgot to mention a good resource at the USFA. You can order some free stuff if money is an issue.
