Show #44: Fire Safety

Show #44: Fire Safety

The Radio 4 the Ages team was so happy to welcome Jo Provost (Fire Inspector with the Charlotte Fire Dept. – Fire Prevention Bureau) on the show this Sunday.  With mobility, cognitive/mental, and memory issues becoming more of a factor as we age, it’s great to hear about some of the easy and useful things we, and our loved ones, can do to not only lower the risk of a fire, but also increase the chance of survival in the event of a fire.  From something as simple as shaking a fire extinguisher to making sure smoke and carbon-monoxide detectors are functioning properly, we learned a lot of great tips to make our homes, and the homes of our ageing loved ones, safer.  This is definitely a show you don’t want to miss.  So tune in and get involved!
