FREE Home Safety Checks are available to Wabasha homeowners aged 55+ who are living independently in their home or apartment.
The goal of this pilot project is to help you identify ways to reduce the risk of falling and provide information and resources to maintain a safe environment so you can stay independent, enjoy peace of mind, and protect your health.
Safety Checks will be conducted by Wabasha Ambulance EMTs who have received social training and will include a walk-through of your home and entryways, safety recommendations, and review what to do in case of an emergency. EMTs will also offer an optional blood pressure check. Participants will receive a free home safety kit.
Safety Checks are offered the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays from 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM in July, August and September 2017.
Call Wabasha Ambulance at 651-565-2633 to schedule your free appointment.
