Emergency Preparedness For National Safety Month

June is National Safety Month. This is a great time to check in on senior home safety as well seniors’ emergency preparedness plans. In emergency situations, seniors are often less able than other adults to protect themselves. For example, older adults are 2.5 times more likely to die in fires than the general population. Preparing for emergencies can help keep seniors safe when hazards arise. (U.S. Fire Administration)

Safety is one of the major concerns of most seniors and their family members when older adults live in their own homes. The concern is valid; injury is the cause of 1 in 40 deaths in America. National Safety Month each June is a great time to check on the emergency preparedness of seniors and the condition of their living spaces. (Healthfinder.gov)
