ABSTRACT

Fire Safety for Older Adults   [open pdf - 1MB]

From the Document: "As we grow older, our bodies change. Poor eyesight, loss of hearing, arthritis, dementia and side effects from medicine can make it more difficult to react to a fire. We need to consider these changes and how they may affect our abilities. In comparison to the population at large, starting at age 65, people are twice as likely to be killed or injured by fires. This booklet is designed to help you learn about fire safety."
