Police, Fire personnel to host seniors safety seminar

Personnel from the BIloxi Police and Fire departments will conduct a free personal safety seminar for seniors on Thursday, April 28 from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. at the Biloxi Community Center on Howard Avenue.

Although the session is being coordinated by Councilmembers George Lawrence of Ward 1 and Eric Dickey of Ward 2, it is open to all residents. Refreshments will be served during the seminar, which will be similar to one coordinated by Councilmember Arlene Canaan.

Police officers will advise residents of inexpensive home-safety measures, and how to identify money scams, which generally target the elderly. Firefighters will inform residents how to obtain free smoke detectors.
