Yesterday afternoon members from Company 16 - A Shift engaged with residents of the Oaks apartments in Silver Spring as part of the MCFRS Summer of Safety program. Fire Station 16 did blood pressure checks, handed out safety literature, assisted residents with completing a "File-of-Life," and were available to check smoke detectors as needed.
The Oaks has a high concentration of seniors, one group that MCFRS has identified as a target for this safety program.
