Pasadena Fire Department Hosts Fall Prevention Training

Published : Monday, September 23, 2019 | 8:31 AM

The Pasadena Fire Department responds to over 3,500 fall-related emergency calls annually. On average, one in five falls involves a serious injury, such as a broken bone or head injury.

Starting today, Pasadena Fire Department will offer fall prevention trainings at community centers and select residential facilities where seniors live and spend their time. The goal of this public education program is to provide seniors and their caregivers with information on how to prevent falls and actions to take in the event of a fall.

Trainings will run through December, and Pasadena Fire Department will collect emergency call data after the program to determine its effectiveness in reducing falls in the community. Please contact your senior residence facility or local community center for upcoming training dates and times.
