MYSAFE:LA OLDER ADULT SAFETY PROGRAM
Los Angeles, California, USA.
“When it comes to home safety and disaster preparedness, older adults have the same objectives as the rest of us stay safe, be prepared. But some older adults face challenges making their living place safer, or preparing for disasters like wildfires and earthquakes.”
“Older adults, people 55 years and older, are at higher risk of being injured or dying in house fires.”

Topics covered include:
- Fire Safety.
- Fall Prevention.
