Elder Safe Program
"Education is the best provision for old age."
With that quote in mind, the Milwaukee Fire Department is intent on keeping the community young, at least at heart. The Elder Safe Program was created with our own parents in mind. The audience is given valuable tools to assist them in maintaining a safe living environment.
The Elder Save Program is designed for assisted and independent care facilities, religious groups and organizations whose focus is on education and safety of older adults. Lasting from 30 to 60 minutes, the presentation covers seasonal safety concerns, safe cooking, heating and living. In addition, emphasis is placed on evacuation and preventing and handling medical emergencies. Educators also distribute the "File of Life"; a refrigerator magnet that contains medical information that will be necessary should an emergency arise.
By providing this education, the Milwaukee Fire Department helps ensure that our loved ones are able to maintain an appropriate level of independence.
