Fire Safety for Seniors

Older adults are especially vulnerable when it comes to fire risk. As we age our reflexes slow so we are not able to react as quickly. Medical or mobility issues also impair our ability to move or react as quickly as we may need to, medication we take may make us sleepy or forgetful. All of these issues contribute to the fact that seniors in Alberta are at a high risk of dying in a fire.

Seniors' Injury in Alberta are on the rise. For more information download this Alberta Government booklet: An injury-free Alberta in which to live, work and play.

Here are some tips to help keep you safe!
