Fire Safety in Your Home
 
DC Fire & EMS Department is committed to keeping our senior residents safe. They have created a program, specifically for older adults which addresses fire risk reduction and planning for "what if.." .  Please join us for this instructive presentation which will include plenty of time for Q&A.
 
Over 1,200 older adults die each year from fire which is the sixth leading cause of death in this population group.   As we become older, our fire risk increases. From October 2018 to present the District has had 31 fire fatalities. Of those, 20 were aged 60+.  It's always good to learn new ways to reduce your risk of such a calamity and how to react should a fire in your home occur.
