injuries among older adults. This year’s theme is “Ready, Steady, Balance:
Prevent Falls in 2016.”

both falls and fire prevention among older adults. It is centered around 16 key
safety messages–eight fire prevention and eight fall prevention. The program was
designed to be implemented by a coalition comprising the local fire department, service
clubs, social and religious organizations, retirement communities, and others.
