WESTVILLE — Faith in Action South, in partnership with Westville firefighters, is offering free home safety checks to seniors age 60 years and older who live in the Westville Area Fire Protection District. The checks are scheduled to take place from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday.
Using a standardized checklist, firefighters and EMTs will ensure the homes of seniors are hazard-free by checking smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, changing batteries and light bulbs and installing smoke and carbon monoxide detectors as needed. In addition, they will check for fall prevention and other safety issues.
Visits are by appointment only. Call Faith in Action South at 267-2752 by Tuesday, July 15, to sign up or for more information.
