Assisting Seniors In Illinois Communities

Lieutenant Chris Van *** of the Riverdale Fire Department attended the first Riverdale Landlord meeting of 2008 January 17th, and gave property owners startling facts!  At age 65, older adults are twice as likely to be killed or injured by fires or falls compared to the population at large and their population is increasing rapidly!

In Illinois, a fall and fire prevention program which is geared specifically for older adults is available FREE!   The program, called, "Illinois Remembering When" which was developed by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), The Center for High-Risk Outreach, and the Center for Disease Control (CDC), can be conducted through neighborhood groups and gatherings.  Please help us spread the word! 

All seniors do not live in safe environments, and many are exposed to life-threatening dangers just from everyday living.  This program will bring awareness and prevention.  If you have a group interested in sponsoring a gathering of older adults in Illinois, please contact Lt. Chris Van *** at the Riverdale Fire Department at 708-849-2122 ext. 3812.  If you know of someone needing to get this crucial information, please contact him at the same number to sign up for the next presentation.  Tax deductible donations are also being accepted. 

Lieutenant Chris Van *** - informing property owners on the dangers to older adults.


At the conclusion of the presentation, Joe Hodges, Chairman of the Riverdale Landlord Association handed over a donation that was collected from the concerned landlords after hearing about the need.
