The program, the Fire Inspection Reserve Seniors Task Force, emphasizes the importance of smoke detectors, fire extinguishers, swimming pool safety, first aid and emergency preparedness.

Its goals are to educate the community about fire safety, involve seniors in the fire service and ensure safe businesses and homes, Fire Chief Bernard F. Heimos said.

Applications are available at City Hall, 10200 Slater Ave. Kathy Williams is the program coordinator.
