City Offers FREE Check Up Calls For Seniors

 

 RSVP is a FREE program aimed at making sure a senior living alone is safe. Seniors   (55 years and older) in the program will receive a friendly phone call from a volunteer to make sure they are safe. Each program volunteer is paired up with the senior based on similar interests - hobbies, education, background, etc. so that they may have things in common to talk about during the check-up call. 

  

This free phone call is a great way to ensure the safety of a senior living alone who is homebound, isolated and in need of a check-up call or somebody to talk to.

  

 If you are interested in this free service please call:

(915) 212-1685

El Paso Fire Department Summer Safety Tips 

El Paso, Texas- The summer is upon us and the El Paso Fire Department would like to remind citizens of some summer heat and swimming safety tips:

  • Signs of heat related illnesses are progression Heat Rash, Sunburn Heat Cramps, Heat exhaustion and Heat Stroke
  •  Stay indoors and limit your exposure to the sun.
  •  Drink plenty of water and replace electrolytes. Avoid heavy meals, caffeine and alcohol.
  • Check on friends and family, especially the elderly.
  • NEVER leave children or pets alone in closed vehicles.

 Swimming Safety:

  • Drowning is one of the leading causes of unintentional injury-related deaths in the United States and is the second leading cause among children ages 1-14.
  • Child drowning's and near drowning's can happen in a matter of seconds and typically occur when a child is left unattended or during a brief lapse in supervision.
  • Do not use flotation devices as a substitute for supervision
  • If a child is missing, always check the pool first. Seconds count.

Ensure that all family members are aware of these tips and call 911 for any emergency. We wish all the citizens of El Paso a safe and joyous summer!
