Public Safety Education
Our staff works seamlessly with the North Greece, Barnard, and Lake Shore Fire Districts, as well as the local school districts to provide fire prevention education to children. Through this program, countless lives have been saved in Greece.
Our public education staff also offers an adult-oriented program aimed at educating our senior population in home and fire safety.
Blood Pressure Screenings
In addition to our public education program, we conduct regular blood pressure screenings at the Mall at Greece Ridge as well as several Senior Living communities in the district. You can find us every Friday morning in the Food Court at Greece Ridge center from 8:30-10:30.
You are also more than welcome to stop in to any of our stations for a blood pressure check.
Smoke Alarms Save Lives
Every year in the United States, about 2,500 people die in home fires. Most of these deaths occur in homes that do not have working smoke alarms.
Smoke alarms should be checked at least once a month and most types require new batteries every six months.
Carbon Monoxide Safety
Carbon Monoxide (CO) is a colorless, odorless, and poisonous gas that is created during combustion. Heating and cooking devices that burn fuel of any kind can be sources of carbon monoxide. It is also created by cars, motorcycles, and gasoline-powered machinery as well as fireplaces. All homes should have a carbon monoxide alarm and these alarms should be checked regularly.
If you need help checking your smoke or carbon monoxide alarms, please let us know. We would be glad to assist you, as it is our goal to ensure all of our residents all have working alarms. We regularly go door-to-door and offer to check our residents’ smoke and CO alarms. If you would like us to check your smoke alarms, please call 227-2123
