Our senior population is the fastest growing and most vulnerable group in our community. The Amherstburg Fire Department addresses seniors’ special needs through the Office of the Fire Marshal’s Older & Wiser Program.

Our public education people host information sessions and slide presentations designed specifically for our older residents. We work with seniors centres, retiree organizations, Meals on Wheels, social services and other groups to ensure that elder persons and caregivers are aware of fire hazards, prevention and safety.

To arrange for one of our public educators to meet with your group, call 519-253-6573.

If you have a relative or friend in this vulnerable group, please take a few minutes to complete the fire safety check of their home. It could be a lifesaver.
