Older Adults and Fire Safety
The St. Charles Fire Department has a Fire-Safe Seniors Program. This program helps you plan and implement fire safety interventions for you and your family. It includes:
- Home assessments to identify existing fire hazards and determine the need for smoke alarms.
- Smoke alarm installation to ensure participants' homes are adequately equipped with working smoke alarms.
- Education to provide in-person fire safety messages and tips to older adults, their family members and caregivers.
- Follow-up to determine if alarms are working, to assess any changes in the older adult's safety knowledge, attitudes and behaviors, and to see if any fires have occurred.
