High Risk Population

People with Disabilities

It is extremely important to plan for those who may need assistance during a fire or other emergency.  Download your Home Escape Plan Grid here. 

Read Home Safety for People with Disabilities for recommendations on how to be prepared for a fire emergency. 


Older Adults

Knowing what to do in the event of a fire is particularly important for older adults. At age 65, people are twice as likely to be killed or injured by fires in the home.

Know Someone Who Needs Assistance?

We can help. Sign-up for a free CHiRP Home Alarm Check. Firefighters visit the home to ensure smoke and carbon monoxide alarms are working, correctly located & not expired. Have alarms that need replacing? We can help with that too.
