I got a chance to see what seniors learned.xxx fire week-mpkg-1 fire week-mpkg-3 david friese spoke to folks at the pine island senior center.

He spoke not just about fire safety - but topics that this particular group would encounter more frequently... like medical assistance.

Anne warehime was in the audience today.

She says this interaction really put her mind at ease.

She recalls sometimes people her age don't call 911 when they need help.

Fire week-mpkg-4 "if i call i'm going to be charged for it and they don't charge unless they administer or transport.

When you call 911 you aren't necessarily going to be charged for the call."

Tonight - the rochester fire department will hold open houses at all five fire stations from 6 to 8 p-m.
