When it comes to the safety of adults, 65 and older, the Saskatoon Police Service and the Saskatoon Fire Department, in partnership with the Saskatoon Council on Aging, are putting the focus on prevention. And they're doing this through a fun, innovative age-friendly program called the Community Police and Fire Academy.

This new collaborative venture aims to empower and educate older adults by providing information about safety and security issues that will help them live safely and independently.

Participants will gain valuable knowledge about the police and fire services such as: home and personal security, fraud prevention, internet safety, traffic safety, elder abuse, K-9 policing, emergency preparedness, fire safety, fall prevention, the 911 system and how to report a crime.

The Community Police and Fire Academy is an eight week program beginning April 17, 2019 and ending on June 5, 2019. The 2.5 hour sessions will be held on Wednesday mornings between 9:30 am and noon in the Community Room of the Saskatoon Police Service (76 25th Street East) or the Community Room of Fire Station No. 3 (2613 Clarence Avenue South).

Enrollment is limited to 25 participants and is free to attend. Applicants must be 65 years or over, live in the Saskatoon area, commit to attending all sessions and have an interest in learning more about the police and fire services here in Saskatoon. Applicants are encouraged to fill out the application completely, including why they would like to attend and how they will be able to share the knowledge they gain with our community.
