The following programs are run to promote the safety of seniors at home or out in the community.
People who cannot maintain their own smoke alarms, live in their own home with limited domestic support and are aged over 65 or have a disability can request assistance to install a battery operated smoke alarm or replace a battery in an existing alarm. The SABRE Program [SC1] is offered in partnership with Fire and Rescue NSW.
Seniors Groups can request a safety talk for their members which will include information from local police on how to avoid crime at home, over the phone or out in your neighbourhood. These talks also include information from our Road Safety Officer on how to look after your safety as a pedestrian and while driving a car. They are presented in partnership with NSW Police.
Most years, as part of our Seniors Week program, we offer our always popular safer driving workshop for seniors which includes tips for maintaining driving skills later in life, the latest information on changes to NSW road rules and the opportunity for an on-road driving assessment by a qualified driving instructor.
