SMFR Senior Resources

Welcome to SMFR Senior Resources

For everyone at SOUTH METRO FIRE RESCUE, our calling is taking care of our citizens like they were members of our own family. South Metro has continued to see a significant number of calls for service for older adults. In addition to providing emergency services, we know the importance of investing in prevention, and we are committed to ensuring all of our older adult citizens extend the healthy, active years of their life. Part of this includes staying educated on the factors that put you at higher risk of illness or injury. While we offer a wide range of classes and events for all ages, our district goal is to help our older adults remain safe, active, and independent by providing free community education on top risks. We hope this information will be helpful.
